Encouragement in Watercolor

This was was inspired by my daughter and her hard work in college.
She made straight A's and I couldn't be more proud of her.


Front sentiment:  Reach for the stars!


Inside sentiment:  You've always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for  yourself. - Glinda, Wizard of Oz

She has a kitty and once I saw this image, I knew exactly what to do with it for her.
My challenge was creating a nighttime scene to be fitting for stars, so I chose more of a twilight dusk sky.  For me it worked while still keeping this an uplifting card.
This is shared with the Unity FWF projects today.

Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co stamps from the Phyllis Harris Reach For The Stars set and I Am Woman.  Also, watercolor paper and brushes, Sakura Koi watercolor paint and gems.

Have a lovely week.
