A Lovely Birthday

Good Monday Morning!
I'm playing along with Win It Wednesday, Laurie's Fabulous Favorites.
This week Laurie challenges us to use our favorite coloring techniques.
I've chosen a couple for my birthday card.

Ink stenciling is a favorite for a subtle background. 
And above all others, watercolor. So relaxing, and always a delight to
see where the water will take the color.

The leaves were shaded with copics, another favorite.
Getting this one under the wire. 
Hope your week is full of crafty goodness!
