Birthday Wishes


We have just returned from a wonderful few days R&R in our caravan in a fabulous nearby National Park -  it's was truly  magical, quiet, serene and sooooo relaxing....fortunately for us we are still able to travel around our state with basic pandemic restrictions.... very few others at the park.
Today I am posting a square card for a change...  the stamped floral image is from my stash and I used a light watercolour wash of Distress Inks as the base for added pencil colouring.  For some interest I stamped the sentiment and gold embossed it and a card section I die cut with a notched border and used orange card as a thin border frame onto a butter yellow card.
I am playing along with Watercooler Wednesday WWC283 -  Tristan's challenge - Anything Goes with a Feminine Twist   ....    AND    ....   Seize the Birthday #196 - Tic Tac Toe ---  one image, flowers and largish sentient.
Thanks for stopping by my blog  ---   have a Happy Day and stay safe
