An extra card for CAS(E) This Sketch 99

Hello!

I needed to make a card for someone who is celebrating a special birthday soon. It took me a while to think what I was going to make. I had to make a big card for a group of us to sign. This card is A5. It turns out that this week's sketch for CTS and wPlus9 Pretty Peonies work perfectly in this format. :-)
The photo doesn't do this card justice, but you get the idea. ;-)
The first dignitaries arrived in Brisbane today for the G20 summit. They'll be arriving non-stop over the next two days. Brisbane City is a little crazy right now. President Obama arrives on Saturday, and they've just created a new security zone just a few kilometres from my home at the University of Queensland because he's speaking there. All I know is that I am really looking forward to that extra public holiday they have given us on Friday! I plan to stay home and not go anywhere if I can help it! I really need a day of rest!

Thanks for visiting!

Hope you enjoyed your day off today and didn't have to even get out of your pyjamas!! I bet its crazy there, all those Leaders in one place, so glad I'm not in charge of all that security. Such a gorgeous card, really love the turquoise with the flower colours. Very modern and pretty at the same time.

You are a master, woman. I love the colors and the flowers are gorgeous. I assume you hand painted that? Watercolors? Something?
