Child's Play

Howdy Crafters - I have a watercolor background card - I am calling this Child's Play because it reminds me of a drawing that one of my young grandchildren would create. I used Pearlescent waters colors to create the sun, clouds and grass. I added embellishments from the scrap box that were left over from other creations - such as the die cut houses, -love these open doors - fussy cut the flowers from patterned paper scrap and inside the card is a partial section of a die cut of grass border. I stamped Happy Birthday on the grass - this card is now ready for a summer birthday card. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week ~ Gail ~
