Desiree on a swing

Hi everyone, I hope you're all well. I'm here to share a might like to get your sunglasses!! I've made this card with a few challenges in mind, one of them asking for bright colours...
Well I did warn you, lol. The image is Bugaboo, or should I say images...I've tried something new and am really pleased I've sussed it cos I've wanted to do this for a while...I merged two Bugaboo digi images using Paintshop Pro. I've coloured using my Copics, really loving these pens. I've also used them on the tag, which started off white. I've had the bright orange ribbon for ages so it was nice to be able to use it finally. I think this card is lovely and summery. Hope you like it. Here are some more piccies...

I would like to enter this in the following:-
