Wish Big

A birthday card using the Mojo Monday Sketch #264.

I was using up scraps on my desk from another project and decided to use the sketch from Mojo Monday to create a birthday card.

 

I stamped the new Stampendous Butterfly a second time onto white cardstock and colored using the STAEDTLER Aquarell Watercolor Pencils.  I stamped the sentiment from Penny Black and used papers from My Minds Eye - The Sweetest Thing - Honey.

Should have been a quick and easy card that took me two hours of swapping out pattern papers to get the layers of color and texture. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
