Good morning to everyone.  I have a fun card to share with you today.  
This card features the so sweet image Gertie Fish from Whimsy Stamps.  I was lucky enough to have received Gertie as a Whimsy Friday Freebies, she is an absolute delight to colour. 
 I have made the card for this month's Spectrum Noir Challenge  - Floral/Nature.
 I hope you can join us using a creation coloured with your Spectrum Noir markers and/or pencils.
