Horse and Dragon Afternoon

Sitting here watching Disney's Secretariat with daughter Amy and husband. They went to the movie theatre this afternoon and I spent time in the Bubble. I colored this a few days ago and made the card this afternoon. I went with the colors of Ireland's  flag: orange, green, and white.
