New, to me, designer

Hey friends. I hope you had a great day. Ok so I have a confession to make. I really want to learn how to make beautiful cards that have limited coloring. I find it so difficult. Don't get me wrong I love coloring and I adore people images, but I see all of these gorgeous cards without a lot of coloring and I want to do it too. lol  So, my plan was to start the new year trying to develop my skills in these types of cards, well I stumbled upon Sherri Baldy's Facebook page and that plan went out the window. lol Her images are so darn cute I had to color a couple up. I am not giving up though. lol So here is my card for today.

Paper: MME, Recollections
Ribbon: Paper Issues

Hehe, I doubt that your plan will work, Tonya. And you're such a talented colorist, why would you want to limit your coloring? :-) By the way, this card is fantastic, one of my favorites! :-)

My oh my another fabulous image. Your colouring is out of this world. Clicked on your link but it took me to face book which I don't Have. Does she have another outlet for her work do you know? Hugs Mrs A.
