A Texas-Sized Birthday

It's a new challenge over at the FairyTale Challenge Blog
This week our theme is 'Country Inspiration'. Use the colors of your country. 

Doodle Pantry has been kind enough to sponsor our challenge. 

Thank you, Doodle Pantry!!

I used Doodle Pantry's Texas-Sized Birthday . This set is actually a freebie with purchase. :) Doodle Pantry has always been very generous with their images, and they have something for everyone and everything. Being from Texas, I'm partial to this set. 

I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils. I then matted my image on Stampin' Up's Real Red and Brilliant Blue card stock. My white layer is embossed with Cuttlebug's Happy Birthday embossing folder. My card base is Sahara Sand.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
