Make a wish

I made this card from the stamped image I received in the PCJ stamped image swap. It is a Stampabilities House Mouse image (and I may just have to get this one), which I coloured with water colours, cut out with Nestabilities into a scalloped rectangle and mounted it on brown leather effect card. I made a yellow card blank which I cut with a scalloped blade (though I think it would be better to cut it while the card is open as I have a reverse effect).

I added a Cuttlebug die cut slider, with a Nestabilities rectangle threaded with Papermania ribbon. I stamped "Wishing You" from the Stampendous small greetings set. It took ages to decide which words to stamp and I added the dots myself but after I had stamped them I realised they were perfect for the image. As a child we were taught to pick dandelion clocks and blow at the same time making a wish!

So this is a multi purpose card, you could add any greeting to follow the dots!

(Next time I must draw a pencil line before I put the ribbon on, it is a little crooked!)

I added Faux stitching with a white pen and now I can enter it in the House Mouse Monday challenge blog challenge for this week, which is stitching!


  1. Very cute image. I like the way you chose to use a very plain background and let the image stand out.

  2. Very sweet, I Like the clean look of this and great stitching.
