Happy Birthday Card

This is a birthday card that I made using colored pencils and gamsol.  I'm pretty new to this technique and I must admit that I'm longing for a set of prismacolor pencils.  I have one prismacolor pencil and I can tell from it that they are SO much nicer than any other colored pencils that I have or have used.  

Well, here's the card:
It's a simple one.  I stamped images from the SU set called Time Well Spent and colored them with colored pencils and used gamsol to smooth out the pencil.  It came out looking like designer paper, I think.  Then I set it aside and it sat there staring me for a while.  I finally decided to make it into a simple birthday card.
Some cardstock layers of sky blue and black and topped off with some black zig zag stitching and a birthday sentiment.  
Simple.  Done.  I like it.

Thanks for stopping by!
