Pia **Day 3**

Check out today's wonderful card by Pia:

This card is pure perfection! I love Pia's coloring on Kraft- such a great idea. Her bright colors with lovely shading just "pop". Pia chose the perfect striped patterned paper that ties all of her colors together. And that big red bow is so fun! This card is sure to make anyone smile on their birthday.

Here is my take on Pia's beautiful creation. I was so inspired by her coloring on kraft that I had to give it a try. I used watercolor pencils and a gel pen and when I was finished I went over it all with distress ink.


Thanks for stopping by!

Pia's card today is one of my favourites. It's such a perfect card. Love your take on her card Jill. Your colouring on kraft is wonderful and the highlighting with the gel pen look great. Love the scallop ribbon and text paper too.
