Well Internet Traveled Card!!!

Evening All,

Well heres a wee card that's traveled a very long distance though cyber world!!! Rick is sponsoring over at 613 Avenue Create this week and he wanted to make a card for the challenge. The theme over there is Anything Goes with Spring Fever.

He had coloured the image and asked me to make the backing card for it. So this is what I came up with (Top is the second version. Here is the first.)
Rick wanted some pink flowers on it to make it have more of a spring feel. 

Im not sure which is my Favorite.
Here is what Rick Had to say.

I was so happy to be able to do a GDT for 613 and I thought you might be amused by the way the card come to life...I first drew and then coloured my image-I use a pigma micron Black pen usually .005 and an .01 on Neenah solar white 80lb card stock-coloured with ProMarkers, Spectrum Noir Markers and PrismaColour Pencils-As sometimes happens I got in a hurry and rather than scanning my design I realized I was colouring the original so this is a one of a kind card for sure. I generally scan my coloured images into the computer and create virtual projects but I wanted to send something more substantial for 613, so I scanned my original coloured image and sent it off to my friend HAZEL of Dido's Designs, a member of my EDT and a resident of Scotland-she printed out the image and made the card then photographed it and sent me shots for my approval-that's the first picture I have sent. I thought it needed PINK to look more springy so she added the flowers, took more pictures and here we are---I am also including close up of the original scan---hope you all enjoy my INTERNATIONAL card which traveled over 20,000 miles to get here. 

Love Hazelxo
