Wishes do come True!



Oh, Mo, has done it again...:) Fell in love with this "make a wish" image and thought it would be perfect for a special friend's birthday celebration. Followed the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and challenged myself up with 4 Crafty Chicks' paper piercing challenge - fun, but my fingers hurt from holding that push pin. I found the red buttons with the flowers embedded in them at the LSS, had the pins to make my very own embellies...oh, and of course, it's a "fancy fold" easel card. All in all, I think it came together nicely.

Thanks so much for stopping by - HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
