Mom's Birthday Card

This is my Mom's birthday card. I started working on it very very early this morning. Everybody seems to have liked it. It's Prismacolored, then I used a blender pencil and Gamsol. I chalked the entire image with a sponge then slightly tea-dyed the edges to give it more of a vintage look. I recently purchased the Prismacolors and I'm enjoying every minute I use them. Before I purchased these pencils, I questioned whether or not I should be doing this. Nonetheless, my Mom loved her card... in the inside is a very simple handwritten message, "Happy Birthday Mom, Love you! Mary Jayne" can't get more to the point than that.

You know, it's really something that you color better than me. I mean, drawing is not the problem for me. My coloring skills are. The card was indeed awesome.
