Happy birthday!

   Hey there!  Today I am paying it forward with my card.  I recently was in a situation where I asked folks to help me out by making/sending some cards for me and now I have the opportunity to do the same for someone else who an extra card or two might brighten a day.  Gladly, I will craft! :)  Birthdays are a fun time and sometimes we take them for granted...even joke about the dread of getting older.  For some folks though every birthday is a gift.  Here is the card I made:
Masculine cards still throw me for a loop!  I always want to add just a little more...something!  I fought the urge here!  No bling, no ribbons, no pearls or buttons!  LOL  I had to keep repeating that to myself.

Side view.  Everything is sponged.  I used my mat pack to make dots, but not holes!  Several layers of toned down colors.

I sponged clouds, but wanted to keep it soft and dreamy looking.  To me this whole image invites day dreaming.  Hot air balloon rides and willow-y clouds!  Happy birds doing their thing!  Wishes for brighter days ahead.
 My wish for you is exactly that.

I hope that you have a good day!  I will be back soonest with more to share.
