Wish Big



It's March Blog Hop time!

Here is this month's gorgeous inspiration photo:



I loved the color scheme, and went with that as my inspiration. The background of my card was created by adhering strips of the star border die cuts in Aqua Mist onto the Aqua Mist base.

The focal image is from 2012 Birthday Tags, which I stamped twice.

Thanks for taking a look!
