Congratulations

I had a card request for a young girl who lives in Mauritius who has just got brilliant results at school. Her Aunty lives over here now and wanted to send a nice card.  This is the first time I have coloured dark skin so I was hoping I got it right. Feedback from her yesterday was 'Its perfect, and so beautiful'. So I am a happy bunny:)
