Wish Big

This is the second male birthday card that I had to make this week.  It is for my eldest daughter’s boyfriend, he is turning 23.  I used the same sketch again from the Inkspirations challenge and the same idea as my Starry Wishes card.  I just changed the background squares.
I am also entering this in the Anything Goes challenge at Paper Players this week.


I used the Classic Stars wheel this time. I rolled it in versamark and used white embossing powder on shimmery white card.  I then sponged bashful blue, marina mist and daffodil delight over the stars and punched out the squares.
So kinda the same but different.  Please leave a comment and let me know which one you like best.  I’m not sure, I was happy with how both of them turned out.
Ingredients :
Stamps : Pun fun, short and sweet, classic stars wheel
Card : shimmery white, crumb cake, NQN, pumpkin
Ink :  versamark, stazon, olive, pumpkin, daffodil, turquoise, bashful blue, marina mist
Other : white embossing powder, square punch, circle punch, cropadile, sponges, aquapainter

I got some great news too! I am now a Colour Queen Courtier! That just means that my Razzleberry Wishes card got an “honourable mention” at Colour Queen this week.  YAY!!!
