Today's card is for the Make It Monday 2017 A la Carte which allows us to pick any challenge from the past year.
I'm happy to play along and chose to make a watercolor wash background as shared by Laurie Schmidlin.
I used Distress inks to watercolor the background for this winter birthday card using the In the Meadow stamp set. That was on my very first order from PTI and I just don't use it enough! I loved the sentiment and can't think of anything more appropriate for this card. I also blended inks on the tree and the sentiment tag, before embossing the greeting in gold. The two deer had sparkles added with WOS.
I was inspired by this beautiful card sample of Laurie's.
Thanks so very much for your visit! Hope your New Year is off to a good start, stay warm!
