Happy Birthday, Esther!

Hi everyone! I'm always posting these at the very last minute! This card is for Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #47. The colors this week were: chocolate chip, tangerine tango, so saffron, whisper white

I made this card for my sister, Esther, who celebrated her birthday yesterday. These colors were hard! I struggled with them. I used Charmaine's Weekend Sketch Challenge #74 to help me along.



Thanks for looking!

Great job, Anthonette. I always love your designs and this is no exception. Especially love the little details, like the teeny butterflies, and the way you highlighted the sentiment in a larger, slightly different oval. Great use of the sketch as well. Congrats on top 20!
