Watercolor birthday card

Hi there!

Happy Wednesday to you... and thanks for popping in to take a look at the card I'm sharing today !

I used :

  • Design ID #256687 by Lori Whitlock
  • Zig markers to create the watercolor smooshed background
  • Sentiment (Label Love) from Altenew
  • Enamel dots
  • Silhouette cameo

My card was inspired by:

Uniko-challenge-47 ~ Playing with the twist of a birthday card.

I just love the pattern on the suitcase. I thought this cutting file was the perfect fit for the inspiration provided! The light touches the green grass so beautifully in the photo, and by using the watercolor smooshing technique I tried to capture the moment!

Also sharing my card at:

Seize the birthday ~ No topping option


Wishing you a wonderful day!

I'm still catching up on posts that appeared when I was traveling. Your card is beautiful. I love the Silhouette design and the colors behind it are perfect for that sunshine-y look.

Hannelie, once more you created a wonderful piece of art!
I like how you used the same colour palette for your background as our challenge inspiration pic!
