Here's a close peek at the coloring. It took me longer than usual to 
color this scene. I'm happy with the result! I love the internal sentiment  
from AAW Printworks Collection called Joy & Hope. 

The best ink to stamp on Vellum with is Stazon. This is another fav sentiment of mine called Precious gift from Stampendous. I cut a border dazzle from Hot off the Press to finish off the edge of the card. Thanks Lyne for giving me the advice to add something extra in that space!
