A special birthday wish

Hi there!

Sharing a birthday card I made yesterday... using the sketch of freshly made sketches #20.
Color inspiration from color throwdown #177





The flower was printed 4 times (re-sized) from a digital image, and painted with an acrylic pearly paint. Finished off with a pearl in the centre.
