Wishing Well Birthday

 Hello!  Here is another card I made for a February birthday. This one was made for a friend and neighbor whose birthday falls right on Valentine's Day. How lucky can you get?!?!

I began with working on the focal point....the wishing well. All the pieces were die cut in brown card stock except for the well and the roof. The well was die cut in a light gray and then shaded with Copic markers and the roof was cut out in Kraft card stock and additional color added with Copic markers. Bakers twine was used to create the rope for the bucket and was adhered prior to putting the wishing well together. After assembling, it was attached with dimensionals to a blue panel. A grass border was added to the bottom of the well and an ivy garland was adhered to the roof and little yellow flowers added. Cloud images were die cut and positioned above the well. Cardinal images were die cut and placed in various positions.

Having finished the focal panel, I then created a frame around it in white card stock.  Next, this was matted with brown card stock and then adhered it to a white base card. As a final step and to add a bit more interest, a sign was manually created using some wood grain digital paper I had in my stash. The wording "Make a Wish" was computer generated. This completed my project.
