Make A Wish

My wish is to not have allergies! 
This week has been bad - I've literally hidden in my house for 
the last two days. Which normally I would welcome so I could 
stamp but I haven't had the energy.

I did manage to make one card for these two challenges:
Seize the Birthday - anything goes
Just Add Ink - "Just add M"

The"M" is the sentiment - Make a Wish.

I've really started to embrace using dsp lately- it can add a lot to the
design without a lot of work. I love the bold black & white stripes.
I found some old paper from Stampin' Up! that has a design on it 
but you can't really see it until you sponge some ink over top. 
I did that with some distress ink. It pops against the black.
The stamp set is from Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval collection.
And the sentiment is a die from Penny Black.

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!

Such a fabulous and fun card Susan! I love the pop of the pink sponged DSP amongst the black and white layers and it really makes that gorgeous cup cake shine! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week :-)
