Cococat Image Swap card

Each month on Cococat's Cardmaking site someone takes a turn sending out an image and then we post the results in the gallery. It's amazing the different ideas everyone comes up with for the same image. This month, this beautiful wagon image was sent out. I was a bit intimidated as I'd never colored an image as detailed as this before. But as I got going, it was actually a lot of fun. I used Twinkling H2O's and I really like the watercolor feel of the finished image. The paper is from K&Co., the ribbon and the heart are from Making Memories and the buckle is from Rusty Pickle.
The buckle and the heart are re-purposed from a card that I made many moons ago for a Simply Sentiments feature I did on Rusty Pickle. I've had the card since then and never could use it for anything, so I took it apart and used the buckle here. Here's the original card:

I think that I like the buckle much better in the new card. I'm glad I finally put it to good use.
Hope you have a great evening.

Ivanka, I love your sleigh card, the buckle and heart are showcased better on this card for sure. I wanted to congratulate you on your recent published cards.
