{FTH} Sketch #61 w/ a tWiSt: Coloring on Kraft

Good morning-
I wanted to share a card I made for this weeks challenge over at From the Heart. 
I was suppose to post this on Monday, but got a little side track when I saw the new Faithful Friends, that were added to the store!!  Have you seen them?  OH MY GOODNESS!!
Check them out HERE, they are ALL so cute!!! 
So for this card I am using this weeks sketch AND tWiSt challenge; which is coloring on Kraft.
One of my FAVORITES, so of course you know I had to take the challenge!! ;) 
I am using "Full of Beans Birdbrain"!!  Aren't they cute!!!  I really enjoyed coloring them.
I normally tend to color on kraft with color pencils, but for this image I tried watercolour pencils!!
I love the results they provide!! I had to switch my thinking and technique a little, so that I wouldn't peeled the cardstock.  It seems that I only eat jelly beans during Easter!!  I'm not sure why, maybe because the colors are look more yummy!!  The pinks and purples...versus during Halloween!! :) 
Here is a closeup of the image!!1  Cute right!!!
Here is this weeks sketch challenge, which you still have an entire day left to enter!!
