Well, my wonderful friends, I have succeeded in my mission!
A birthday card for a 5 yr. old boy! And just in time too.
I love this sweet image from Crafter's Companion, and it works great for the dog loving birthday boy.
I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Archival ink. I then watercolored it with Distress ink markers. (I love those things!!!! I'm really hoping they make markers with the seasonal colors now that they are a permanent part of the Distress collection.)
