Make a Wish

Good Morning everyone! I hope everyone is having a good week.

I made this card for the Sugar Bowl #24. This week in addition to the sketch was Zig Zags. This was a big problem for me. I don't own any zig zag ribbon that went with my image and I don't have a zig zag punch. I started thinking outside of the box. I found a herringbone cuttlebug folder that I thought looked like zig zags so that is what I went with. The orchid in the background is embossed with this folder. I put the card together and then thought it needed something else so I glittered some felt snowflakes I have and layered them on my silver squares.

I really love this stamp. She is so dainty and she is made for glitter which I love. I love Blue and Purple so it was not hard to pick the colors I thought she would look best in. I really liked the end result.

Well, I have to keep this short. I need to get back to work. I hope you like my card. Thank you for visiting my blog. Let me know what you think.
