Birthday Garden

Happy Monday y'all!

Am so excited to finally get my goodies from Flourishes after winning a random drawing a couple weeks ago from participating in their Summer Lovin' Challenge.  Don't you just love winning stuff?!

I've been commissioned by one of my sis-in-laws to create some cards for her, and this one will be for my Mom.  Mom loves this Garden Gate image, so I knew it would be perfect for her.

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black, then colored it in with my Prisma Watercolor Pencils and blended.  I chalked around the edges with a Dew Drop and matted it with SU! Rose Red and Certainly Celery.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a great week!
