All Occasion Card Using Conie Fong Moonflower Lullaby with CTMH Postcard Perfect paper

Hello friends!  How is everyone?  I hope you are having time to craft or to do something else that you enjoy.  I haven't had as much crafting time as I would like to have.  LOL!  The weather here in Southern CA has been cooler this past two weeks; but it is starting to heat up now.  

I had to color this image twice; due to a marker leak after I had the hair and skin already colored.  So frustrating.  I have heard that you are supposed to open both ends; but when I have tried that; it seems that the ink comes out even faster for me.  

I wanted to use this new paper from CTMH called "Postcard Perfect".  I didn't like it at first; but then it always seems to get better when someone creates something and I can actually see the potential.  The special promotion for this paper and other matching items are only available through the end of May; or while supplies last.  You can find the Paper Pack and other items that match here before the end of May. 

I am thinking of buying another pack of it; because I really love the pastels mixed with brights.  The doily, orange square and the orange part of sentiment on front plus the paper inside are all from the same paper pack.  It even has 4 pages of vellum DP; all 12 x 12 size.
