Mojo Monday #483

Hey Everyone!  Thanks for taking a moment to spend with me.  I want to share with you a Birthday Card that I made for part of a card order that I am working on putting together.  I mentioned a couple posts ago that I am going to be sharing with you a bunch of various birthday cards with you, so here's another one!

I thought that it would be fun to play along with a challenge over at Mojo Monday that I haven't had the chance to play along with for quite some time.  It felt so good to join in the fun again and use a sketch to help me create the card.  

Here's the challenge here...

I started with colouring this image as I knew that it was something that I wanted on the birthday card and then selected papers to match.  I paper pieced the chair, and coloured in parts of the design with a thin black pen to give it some dimension and interest.  I tried to keep the colouring very simple as the papers that I chose were pretty wild.  

Here's the front of the card...

Here's the side view of the card...
