Celebrate - I freakin' love you!

You aren't going to believe this...I unearthed my copics, dusted them off and coloured an image! I am going to need some practice that's for sure, but it felt good to colour again! And why wouldn't it when you have an adorable image like this one to colour? I received several adorable Stacey Yacula stamps for Christmas and I have been dreaming about getting my copics out again. I started small with this little owl, "Snowy." This is what I came up with for my first attempt.

I must apologize for the poor quality of my photos. The lighting was less than ideal and the card has already been delivered so I am not able to do retakes! The papers/colours on the inside and out do actually match in real life, but try as I might to edit them, I could not make them match in the photos. Oh well, you will have to take my word for it. In fact, I feel like this is one of those cards that looks better IRL in any case. Here is the inside of the card...
