Make a Wish

It is finally Friday, everyone! Yay!

Just a fun little card to share with you today - I love this kind!

The card sketch was based on this card made by Betsy Veldman. I loved the long panel in the middle and I copied the layout in my sketch notebook. I turn to my little book often for inspiration!

The patterned paper is from the Que Sera Sera Collection from K&Company. I stamped the bird cage from Elegant Birds (My Cute Stamps) and embossed it in gold. Then I blended the distess inks right over top, pulling colors from the patterned paper. I glittered the edge of the label with Antique Gold glitter, then pulled a big gold button from my vintage button jar. I thought it was a fun touch for the card. Very boho, huh?

Now don't forget about the Waltzingmouse Stamps Customer Blog Hop on Monday! Make sure you head over to the Waltzingmouse Blog and sign up for it! It is going to be a great time, I am really looking forward to it!
