Birthday star...

Good morning!

I can't believe we are half way through July already! I figured that if I was going to continue on with my personal challenge to create birthday cards for each of the Stamping Bella Zodiac Girls then I had better get Cancer done before the signs switch up in a few days. So here she is in all her watery glory. Cancer is the sign of the Crab and she is  sensitive, imaginative, emotional, sympathetic and kind. She possesses an active, shrewd and intuitive mind. Her signature colors are sea green and silver, the shimmering colors of the water and the moon. This go round I was inspired to create a bit of a scene as I imagined this gorgeous, goddess like figure emerging from shallow bay waters surrounded by sweeping willow tree branches. I didn't go super detailed with it since I wanted the sentiment to still be easily read over the image. Again, the sentiment is a mix of stamps with the top being from the Papertrey Ink Stargazer sets and the Cancer description comes with Miss Cancer herself. 
Be sure to check back tomorrow when I share a fun card that I've made with the altered version of Cancer, it is quite the 180 from this soft and serene design and such an easy change up. ;)
