Polka Doodles #22: Girly But No Pink

Good morning, friends! Time for a for a little inspiration for this fortnight's challenge: Girly But No Pink. Here's my offering - a country lady in tweed taking her dog for a walk.

I'm keeping this card simple so that the spotlight will be on the this lovely image from Polka Doodle's Work & Play 10 - Country Life. The patterned papers and greeting are from the collection. There are hardly any embellishments on this card, save for the few buttons.

Here's a closer look at the image which I coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos. I also added some grass to ground the image. I'd like to think that's me taking Rosie for a walk. Although... tweed jacket and a feather in a hat? I think not!
