Make a Wish

How about another Taylored Expressions card today? This is another image from the Make a Wish set. Make a Wish is the latest addition to Taylored Expressions' Giving Tree series! If you're not familiar with the Giving Tree, each quarter TE introduces a new stamp set to support a different charity. When you purchase the Make a Wish stamp set during the months of September, October, and November, TE will donate $7.00 to a national children's charity. You can get all the details here at Taylor's blog.

I'm using Taylor's Sketch #129 but I flipped it. Patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Togetherness 6 x 6 pad and I'm using Riding Hood Red card stock. I stamped the image on Very Vanilla card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers and added some Sakura glitter pen to the star. I cut the felt balloons using Taylor's balloon dies--so cute!! Then I added some twine strings tied together with a red Pearl cotton bow. Finally, I added a twill bow and some flat backed pearls.

Ok, that's it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
