Great video and wonderful little card. I wasn’t all that impressed with this stamp set but after seeing you make this card I have changed my mind. I agree that the colored pencils really brought in the details. Thanks for all the tips.

I love your card design Ashley Tucker. Those colors are so vibrant. I known of children at the Hosp who would love me making this. Also I love the new Birthday sentiments. So appropriate for the older set.
