Make a Wish

Make a Wish - Today I'm sharing a card made for my son, who had a birthday recently.  I wish I could make all his wishes come true.  I chose this particular image for my son as he recently lost his pet parrot - he's always had a real connection with birds - and this bird has been with him for most of his adult life.  I wanted a reminder for him of how special his "Rocky" was to the whole family.

To make today's card I simply stamped and colored the image, layered onto some die cut patterned paper and added the die cut sentiment stacked 4 high for dimension.  A bit of wink of stella added that sparkle (hard to photograph) to the flame.

My tip today - Try to "personalize" your cards, it makes them all that more meaningful.
