Friday Coloring Challenge (on Monday)

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a nice weekend and your week is off to a great start!  We were very busy all weekend and I am trying to catch up today.  I am late with my DT card for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge.  The theme is "color inspiration", courtesy of Design Seeds. You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we want to be able to recognize the overall color palette. As always, you must have a hand-colored image somewhere on your card.

Here is the the color inspiration:

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are GKD Fresh Asparagus and the patterned papers are from Webster's Pages Winter Wings (stripes) and Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses (ornaments). The beautiful image is The Gift by Norma J. Burnell.  It is available from Sweet Pea Stamps and from Norma's Fairy Tangles Art Etsy shop.  I colored it with my Copics and added lots of Liquid Pearls accents.  The only embellishments was a pretty 3D poinsettia sticker from K & Co.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
