This card can be used for many occasions! I can see it used as a smiles across the miles card, I'm missing you card, a house warming card or a birthday card as suggested. I love the streetscape scene stamp! I think it might have faired better on a heavier piece of water color card stock. This is especially true when using a medium like the watercolor pencils. The other change I'll make on my own card will be to leave the bottom center butterfly and two center gem stones off and instead place a sentiment. Thanks for sharing!!!
