I have to tell you that this sketch left me totally inspired so I pulled out the Poppies set by Chris Dark and go to work. I've pulled the colors for my card from the Basic Grey and October Afternoon DP's. I've watercolored the image with my Tombow Markers and then sponged around the edge with Canteloupe Memento Ink.
Both layers of DP have been dry embossed with Cuttlebug folders and then the edges of them were sponged for a bit more texture. I don't often say it (well... okay.... maybe I do) but I LOVE how this card turned out. And for the "birthday twist" I've added this sentiment from the Poppies set as well.
Have you been checking out the chalenges this month? You definitely should!!! We've got a great month planned for you!!
