Birthday wishes with Crystal

Hey guys I'm back!  
Today I want to share a special card I  made for my sister that's been bugging me for one. I just didn't think she would want one of my cards. The other day she gave me an ear full and I felt bad so a long over due for her lol!

I inked up my Crystal in rubber and  decided to watercolor this time with the combo of Distress inks and Derwent watercolorinng pencils.  I layered up lots of pretty paper and with so many pretty embellishments following a pink/light chocolate mousse palette. Something I'm not use to but I like the result.

A few pictures to share.

A have a tendency to add dark shadows when I watercolor but I think that gives it a life like effect don't you think? Well thats' it for me today and hopefully will see you back soon.
