A WISH for D2D....

What a fun image for a birthday card!  This week from Designed 2 Delight Digital Stamps the challenge was extra fun - we had to do a little blog hop to find the free image! And along the way, we got to sample the fantastic inspiration of the D2D Design Team......

Ingredients: Cardstock, Papers, Champagne Rhinestones - Kaisercraft; Chalks - Pebbles Inc; Stardust Pens - Sakura; Signo Pens; Apricot Lace.

I really let the patterns of the paper decide the layout of this card.  I loved the lace and gold trim at the bottom of the paper, so I used that for direction.  I printed the image so that it would fill the card, trimmed it, coloured with chalks, accented the candle and pressies with pens, and trimmed it with a scrap of lace. This was fixed to the paper layers with foam tape for dimension. I added a paper scallop trim and popped on some more of those Champagne Rhinestones (I love those!).  Finally, I popped in a heart top decorative pin. Thanks for peeping!

hugs and blessings,
