Card with coloring page

As soon as I saw the card at the latest Muse challenge, I knew I wanted to use a mandala from one of my coloring books. The mandalas were too large though, so I ended up using another colored page for my card. I’ve outlined everything with white Posca pen to lighten up the image a bit. “Till Mamma”, Swedish for “For Mum” is a small “till” stamp from a set by Slöjd-Detaljer, and alphabet stickers (I don’t know which brand) for “Mamma”.
