Wish Big

Today I am sharing the card that I made for Dawn's RSCC #7.

I also combined it with the CPS sketch challenge for this week (#117).

And here's my card:

I liked the format of yesterday's post, so I think I will try that again. If there is anything that you have a question about that you cannot find in the Recipe, please email me or leave me a comment :)

- I love the triple stripe stamp from Let Freedom Ring. I think I could have bought this set simply for this stamp. I'm not the first person to do this, am I? I used it to create my plaid background. Ah, plaid.
- Ripe Avocado. It is my favorite PTI color. And it goes so well with Spring Moss and Raspberry Fizz!
- The sentiments from Star Prints. I love the whimy of the flourish combined with the formal text. Is that the same font as Fresh Alphabet?
- Vintage Inks. I used Antique Linen as well as PTI's Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo. I just love the look (especially on patterned paper!)

I hope you find this interesting and enjoyable - I thought it might be something different than rehashing what I used to make the card. I am certainly no expert, but maybe you'd like to know why I like what I like? Your comments would be appreciated ;)

I hope you have a great day and stop back soon!

  1. Hey Anya! Love your new card! That triple stripe does make for yummy plaid for sure. Love the combo of bitty dots and stamped dots too. I liked your new entry format....I like to know why people like what they do for sure! :) have a great day!

  2. Anya, I love this! I also love that stamp too and considered buying it only for that purpose. But, I decided not to. Now, I'm re-thinking it after seeing your cute design!

  3. Anya, this card looks so pretty! Like Ashley, I guess I have to put the Star Prints back on my list :-)

  4. I love this card.......and all your cards.
    And don't feel bad. I'm Canadian, and bought that set for the sole purpose of the plaid stamp !!!!

  5. I love the plaid background, so cute! Great job!

  6. Love your card. This is the first time I've visited your blog. You do some very nice work. I love everything you've done. I just love that star set. I think it's my new favorite.


  7. Great card - that set is back on my shopping list now, thanks for the idea!

  8. Anya, all of your work is just wonderful. I love your organizational idea too! Thanks for sharing that little 'secret'! :)

  9. What a cool way to tackle both challenges! Great job! You really nailed the colors AND composition....Fabulous!

  11. I was eyeing that set just for the ability to make the plaid background, too! Fabulous card!
