Guitar Kody & Relax Mae

The challenge this week at Make it Colourful is all about the light source. The challenge is to color the image with the primary light source coming from the upper left corner. I was going to do something dramatic but ended up with a softer color pallet.

This card was made with Guitar Kody and Relax Mae from Some Odd Girl; and the "handmade" tag was made with Flower Garden from Make it Crafty. I used more laser cut embellishments covered with Liquid Pearls and here is the Flower Garden up close:

Did you know? The roadrunners bird are inhabitants of the deserts of the Southwestern United States, Mexico, and Central America; and are the ground foraging cuckoos. The bird, although capable of flight, spends most of its time on the ground. Roadrunners and other members of the cuckoo family have zygodactyl feet (two toes in front and two toes in back). Roadrunners can run at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour (32 km/h) and generally prefer sprinting to flying, however, they will fly to escape predators. The roadrunner has a dove-like "coo" that is slow and descending. It also makes a rapid, vocalized clattering sound with its beak.

Update: I was the top Fav at Some Odd Girl for this challenge!
