Lazy Afternoon

Today's card is for my FIL, whose birthday is today.  He's been in hospital lately so I'm hoping that this watercoloured card will cheer him up a bit. The image from Lili of the Valley is one that I've not used for a little while so it was good to dig it out again.  I kept the layout simple with the large Happy Birthday die. Ironically the papers I chose to match the image are from the Country Lady pad!

Your delicate watercolouring is fabulous and the design is wonderful...including the 'girly' papers, which look so good with this image!
