Looking Up

A sprained wrist kept me from coloring the last several days.  I'm not even sure how it happened.  Thankfully, I had colored these two giraffes last week and was able to assemble this card with mainly my left hand.  It really makes me grateful for the use of my right hand - something I just take for granted.

There's a wonderful sketch challenge and color challenge going on over at MFT:
