Here Comes Summer/ Things With Wings

Good morning everyone!
 Today I am combining two DT projects in one. They work so well together that I thought why not?
The challenge this week at Mo's DP2 is: 
Here comes Summer!
And the challenge at Dutch Dare is:
Things With Wings
 and before I carry on with the post I need to let you all know that this is my last DT challenge with Dutch Dare. They're an awesome team and if any of you ever get the chance to try out for DT go for it! Kelly is so laid back and friendly you'll be comfortable straight away. :-)
Ok! Back to the card!

As usual I am using Prismacolors to color this Mo Manning digi which I printed out on Kraft cardstock. I love coloring on Kraft. It gives you almost an oil pastel effect. The prismas go on so creamily.
My papers are DCWV and I am using some white bradz from 'your guess is as good as mine'. :-)
Below is a close up. Sorry its a bit blurry.

And the inside. Proof again that I did finish it! Nothing fancy, but it is finished!

Dorcas, your card is gorgeous! I love this layout, as well as the image. We seem to like a lot of the same images. I really like the coloring you do on the kraft paper. I unfortunately missed this week's challenge over at Mo's by a few hours, but it will work for the "summer" challenge too. I just won't qualify for the draw for the DT this time. Hugs, dj
