Celebrate Best of Birthdays

Hey there!
I'm in the process of creating some cards for my sister's stash, and this one was fun because I was able to color...coloring isn't just for kids anymore!
I started with Kraft paper, tucked in a bit of blue using the Swirls embossing folder, then added that image after coloring with Prisma watercolor pencils and punching it out.
I think the added twine and button really finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Cardstock: Colorbok Kraft, TPS Blue
Stamp: SU "Best of Birthdays"
