Thank You

Hello dear friends.

Thank you so much for all your birthday wishes!

It was a really special day, made more special by your blog wishes
and the amazing array of gorgeous handmade cards!

My mantel is full of beautiful cards and DH commented that
he didn't think I could fit another up there!

I had my watercolors out last week and found some Altenew flowers
that had been embossed on mixed media paper.

I painted them with the wet on wet technique then fussy cut them.

The piece peeking through the window is dry embossed.
Looks like tissue doesn't it?

Love the soft shades of your watercolouring, Bonnie. The flower is so delicate with the white embossing. It does look like tissue paper in your square aperture. :) Beautiful design, my friend! xx
