Deacon in the Rain Birthday Card

Hello and hope you are having a wonderful day.  We have a busy weekend to include Bit's first piano recital!  I'm so excited!  She's 5 years old and just loves music.

Anyway, today I'm sharing a card for the latest Catch the Bug Blog Challenge: photo inspiration (please check blog for photo).

I actually tried water coloring for the background!  I was attempting for a random look, but found it hard to not be so deliberate about my painting.  Hopefully it looks "artsy," which is what I was going for.  The image is Bugaboo Stamps Deacon Rain, and the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin.  I would have to say that I would definitely try the water color thing again.

So join in this week if you get a chance!

This meets the following challenges: Crafty Catz: Anything Goes/optional Something New (water colors), Polkadoodles: Anything Goes, Digi Choosday: Anything Goes, 4 Crafty Chicks: Water color background, and Crafty Gals Corner: Anything Goes.
