Birthday Wishes

Pretty colors, great sketch, a wee bit of watercoloring and what you do you get?  A clean and simple birthday card.  It's an easy card to make which is something I'm thankful for as a headache does not allow for long periods of creativity.

My card was made for the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge and the Color Throwdown Challenge.


Stamp Set:  Avant Garden (sentiment); Ink:  Pool Party; Cardstock:  Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Watercolor Paper; Other:  Blushing Bride Fancy Frost Sequins, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies

The sketch I used is from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
