A Birthday Card That Travels With Us

To Scotland to be exact. It'll be our Scottish friend's birthday on the 4th August and we were invited to meet them during their summer holiday back in Scotland. I wanted this card to be pretty special for her so I was delighted when checking out the current RIC photo and said: yes, that's it!

I've bought recently a Kohinoor watercolour kit - better later than never. It has 16 beatuiful colours and I decided to try them for backgrounds first. 

The flowers fit just perfectly to the inspirational photo in colours. I chose them from Basic Grey's Fresh Cut paper pad and fuzzy cut the image by hand.

In the end I decided to hand stitch the top stripe to add a little bit of interest. With the help of my ruler's holes I punched along first then stitched through with a lime green thread.

You have still time to take part in this challenge. I think its colours are fantabolous - again!
