Birthday Card Using Conie Fong Ella Fleur and CTMH Blue Skies

Hello Friends! How is everyone?  I hope you are staying safe.  I haven't felt good for several days; but managed to finally finish another card.  Sometimes I just don't feel like doing anything; but coloring and creating does help me feel better in some ways.

I have had this image ready to color for a while; and finally decided to color it.  I love coloring long and flowing hair; but this type of hair was a challenge for me; since the hair was so small in certain areas.  I am not good with darker colors and usually color light colors; but decided to challenge myself with adding two darker colors for the hair.  I think it is always good to do something out of your comfort zone once in a while.
