Such a beautiful selection of colours for this challenge.
I think I managed to get them all on the coloured picture and the design paper too.
This card is called "Best Memories" - because I love sitting in the garden with my cup of coffee watching and listening to all the pretty little birds.
I coloured the sky with water colour paints along with the flowers using some watercolour pencils when darker shading was needed. The little bird of paradise was coloured in bright colours to make him stand out amongst the colourful flowers and foliage. The flowers, bird, gum nuts are all highlighted with sparkles too.
Hope you enjoy Spring in my garden
Hope you enjoy.

I love watching and listening to the birds also, only I would be holding a cup of herbal tea. Good choice to color the bird mostly yellow; it works so well with the bright bg! Lovely soft shading of the blue~

Oh my Wendy, this is soooo gorgeous! I adore these bold beautiful blooms you have colored to perfection. I love how this sweet little bird is holding his own with all these colorful flowers surrounding him; I can almost hear the bird song now. Your card reminds me of the book, "The Secret Garden" because I could totally lose track of time looking at this beautiful floral scene. ~Karen.
