Using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #138 for
inspiration, I created the following birthday card. My aunt will be 89 in March so I think I will set this aside to mail to her in a few months. I wanted the card to be feminine and pretty and the sketch helped me achieve that.
A panel of blue watercolored paper was adhered to the card base. The card panel was then adhered to the blue panel using craft foam.
The inside of the card was decorated with a few die cut flowers and a birthday stamp.
