Ally's Angels #65 DT card for 10 December 2022

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! Can't believe that December is rapidly disappearing already! Too much to do! For Ally's Angels Anything Goes, I decided not to do seasonal holiday. This spring/summer, I had dabbed and swirled acrylic paints onto white cardstock sheet to which I added some gold glitter tempera paint dabs. I've used a couple of ATC-size sections and decided to use a 4.25" x 5.25" piece for a vibrant mixed media birthday card.

Happy Birthday x 4 card=
