Just a card without a callenge

I've been have a big sort-out today, in my computer, in my stash - well just about everywhere and I found a card that I never got round to posting.
I did a wall hanging for a friend using this image and immediately wanted to do it again in different colours, so I thought I'd show it you.


It is of course one of Mo's and I think it is my overall favourite at the moment and it's called 'Learning to Read'.
I coloured it this time in Copics using mainly R20's and C's.
The top left hand corner looked bare but it really didn't lend itself to embellishments so I simply added a computer generated sentiment and then matted and layered it onto red cardstock.
I would like to frame it but doubt whether I would find a frame the correct size and so would probably have to make one. 

Right hopefully I will finish sorting out my jumbled up downloaded papers this evening - wish me luck!!



EDITED
This has been entered to DP2 Favourite 2011 - one is 'All time favourite' which was never made for any challenge - just for fun - so it is gratified it that is part of a entered.

The colouring onthat hat & the red tabard & grey gown just took my breath away. What vivacity you've brought to the image - you sentiment does work superbly - just right I think.
All the best with the computer - I will not offer to help or you'll have nothing at all.
