  48. This must have been so fun to colour. These two are delightful and have fabulous attitudes. I love the bright colours of their "bathing costumes"...no fade into the background black for them. The background with those wonderful matted flags is so striking. The black keeps it from being busy and I love the way the eye moves around the card. Well done!
