No 2 designs ever start out the same way. Came upon this old sketch. It's only a few lines, but it still holds my interest after all these years. I needed an excuse to get back to playing with my watercolor. By the time I'm done, this flower fairy takes on a life of its own.

I explore it further with some edits on photoshop. I did not set out to design a birthday greeting. By adding the balloons, it makes for a lovely magical birthday card, or a festive birthday invite.
