A birthday card for a former colleague .....we worked many midnight shifts together. She is of Dutch heritage, as am I. This is a cool embossing folder I picked up a few weeks ago. I watercoloured the scene, sponged around the edges and mounted it on a card base.

Reminds me of the Keukenhof Gardens. My paternal grandfather was from Arnhem, Netherlands. He came to the United States with his entire family when he was a young man and settled in Washington State. Your card is lovely, soft, and I'm sure will be cherished by your friend. It looks like you embossed first, and then colored - yes? Very nice.
