The Love Musician (Milk Coffee image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

One of my favourite times of the year to create cards is now, I love creating Valentine's Day, Easter and Spring cards (although it's soon Autumn here in Oz, I go by the challenge themes so Spring it is hehe). 

I wanted to practise colouring clothing folds so I printed this gorgeous image out as it has loads of folds in the dress! I probably chose a tricky colour being black but I feel you can see where the folds are supposed to be so overall I feel I'm getting a bit better each time. 

I'm unsure if this background qualifies for red and/or pink, what do you think? If I look for it to be red it is and if I look for it to be pink it is, it's kind of a raspberry colour.
