A challenge card and your opinions needed.

Just as my title says, I need your opinion on something but first I will show you the card I made for the Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge who are celebrating their birthday and you can choose any of their previous sketches to follow. I chose sketch 15 and pretty much followed it to the letter except I didn't put any text on. I don't like to add sentiments until I know what they are being used for, that way they don't sit in a box until the appropriate occasion comes, and I always have a card on hand for almost any occasion if I need one on a hurry :)

 My base paper is Stampin Up but I don't know about purple spotty mat because I have had that paper forever, or the other two (they are more I got from a friend).
The ribbon is from my local craft shop, flowers are Tabby Crafts and Hobbycraft, pearl sprays are from my local haberdashery and the pin is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Oh and the circles for the image and mat were handcut because I have left my dies at the school, so they are a bit wonky, ok a lot wonky! lol

Now this is what I want your opinions on. Please be really honest with me and tell me what you think of the image.
Here's a better pic

 My colouring probably doesn't do it much justice lol, but would any of you use this or ones like it on your cards? You can tell me the honest truth and you won't hurt my feeling because I never drew it lol.
Someone I know drew it and we would love for you to let us know what you think of it.
The image I used is the original sketch and hasn't been enhanced or touched up on the computer in any way etc.
I just wanted to see what you thought about it first before I ask him to draw any more or not.
So if you could leave me a comment and tell me if you like it or not and if you would use it on your cards/projetcs. Or anything else you want to say about it :)

Right I'm off to bed I think because it is 1.30am and I am super tired! lol

Fabulous card,
Love the image,
Not totally sure if I would use it, as a bit early in morning, so brain not working fully, can't think of a occasion for it at moment,
But love the way its been drawn,

Didn't realise until I read your question that it wasn't just one of the many digi imagas you normally use. I like that the bird has little flowers around it too.

Your card is gorgeous and the colouring is great. As for the little bird.... I think she is sooo 'tweet'. Yes, I would definately use her. She is so well drawn and I love the look on her face.
