A Happy Birthday Card

Hey there and welcome. For this card, I did some masking and so created a simple garden scene. This girl image is too adorable, and I think it goes pretty well with the flowers. For coloring, I used watercolor pencils. I ran out of my red card stock, so I inked up an ivory card base using Candid Apple Distress Oxide Ink and spritzed it with water to achieve a speckled look. I then adhered the prepared panel directly to the card base. As a final touch I used metallic paint to add some strokes on the flowers. It is quite subtle, but it shines beautifully when tilted in the light :)

I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and keep safe!
Stamps used: Cute as a Bug, Pretty Petals (Penny Black), Hang in There (Lawn Fawn)
Die used: Fancy Edged Rectangles (Spellbinders)
