A Ducky Birthday

 Welcome

Just a quick post this evening.  

This card was made for a one year old, and when I was searching through my stamps and saw this old one, inspiration struck - never mind that I was on a short deadline :)


I coloured the image with prismacolor pencils, then 'winked' the flower petals, glittered the flower centre with Kidy Glitz, and used some glossy accents for the beak and feet of the wee duck


I finished the inside with some washi tape, that has some flowers on it that resemble the ducks 'hairstyle'

Aww.. so cute. Ducks are one of the first animal a child recognizes, may be because of the rubber Duckie used for baths. I was taken back to 3 years ago, when my son could point to a duck if we quacked. What an adorable card Maxine. Tm that glossy beak is a great addition.
