This card is simple focusing mainly on the image. I did some noline coloring using my Prisma Color Pencils for this one. The sentiment is a phrase die It's a brew-tiful day
For this card I did my favorite water coloring usinf Gansai Tambi Watercolors. I heat embossed the image in gold and to add interest I did some damask stamping in gold and tone on tone :) I have used the Distressed Damask Background for this one :)
