Make a wish


When you read this I am on my way to Las Vegas for the weekend! I made this card using Polka Dot Basics for the background. I used vintage cream ink and was able to heat embossed with clear detail ep. I then stamped the tuilip image in each color (aqua mist, lemon tart and hibiscus burst) onto a vintage cream sheet and cut each out with my Nestabilities classic oval dies. I sponged all the edges with Antique Linen ink from Ranger. I used the coordinating satin ribbon and various buttons from my stash and tied them onto the ribbon with DMC floss.
Thanks for looking!

Great Card. Love the colors you used on it. I really have to break that set out and use it.

I'm so jealous about Vegas! Have fun and win big!

It's so springy! I think the ribbons give it just the right touch.

Cute idea! Like all those different colors and the button placement. Remember, every dollar wasted in a slot machine is a dollar that could have been spent on stamps! :) (Unless you get lucky and win big, then we expect you to share!)
