"Hope Your Birthday Is All It's Quacked Up To Be" Card

Thanks for dropping by!
Today’s card was made with another of those adorable “Whimsy” animals! They are having a "Whimsy" challenge at the new Challenge blog. Go check it out and enter. This weeks challenge is to make an occasion card.
I used a combo of Bazzill Bling, DCWV, and core’dinations cardstocks and papers.
Be sure and let me know what you think! ;)

Thanks All!
Sue, I watercolored it then added highlights with thinned down white acrylic paint. then I added a touch of lite blue Stickles and topped it off with Glassy Glaze. I put it on thick in spots and thin in others to look like ripples.
Hope this helps.
