Appreciate what is

I happened to get this idea 2 hours ago, and just finished another card. This one is maybe the last for the Hero Arts 'one layer' challenge. It's already Monday morning. Birds are singing outside.

おそらく、今週分のラスト・ワンですが、5:00AM過ぎに急に思い立ち、先程出来上がりました(笑) 一眠りしてから、ミーティングに出かけます。

This is the card, 'Appreciate what is'.

The methods I took are masking, coloring by watercolor pencils, chalk inks blending with sponge, heat embossing, and stitching.
