Challenge Time at Mo's Digital Pencil

This week Elaine's theme for our challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil is a color challenge... of red, orange, yellow and neutrals.

I've been wanting to color this image for a while as it (and the sentiment) reminded me of my parents poker games. My parents both enjoyed a good, neighborly, friendly night of poker.. it was always nickel, dime, quarter - nothing big, but they were serious and REALLY good poker players. I wasn't lucky enough to inherit that gene.... I don't think I even inherited their poker faces!! You could read me like a book. If I had a pair of 3's you would have thought I owned the world!

If you know anything about poker, a Royal Flush is the best hand you could have... and it's RARE!!  That's when you really raise, raise, raise to build the pot. And when someone was lucky enough to have a Royal Flush, you would have wanted them to have their heads cut off!! HE-HE!

Simply colored with Copic markers, this Queen of Hearts pretty much says it all... She doesn't seem to be a very nice Queen, though.... and probably won't be on the invitation list to Prince William's and Kate Middleton's wedding.

I'm also entering this in these challenges.
