Make a wish

Today I combined one of the coloring calendar images with some pattern paper and some extra pieces left over from my instant card art images, this time using the sentiment tag.

I will have to admit when I first saw this paisley type image in my coloring calendar I thought now how would I use that on a card, well this time going through the book of extras I had in my instant card art I thought one of those images may work with it and sure enough I think they worked great together.

I liked the glitter that the pattern paper already had on it so to carry that through to the card I used a little bit of gold embossing powder around my sentiment pieces and then after matting it onto a scrap of yellow I had I went around the matting and the scallop on the image with my gold Uni-ball pen. I topped it off with some crystal glaze drops around the card.

Maybe you can see it a little better with this side view.

We had our first snowfall yesterday, I don't think we got anymore than 2 inches but a lot of it is still on the ground, we didn't get above freezing today and normally we are in the high 50's.  Hopefully the forecast for next week is right and we will once again see some 50 degree weather, this is too soon for winter for me.

Hope all is well where you are, I know many are dealing with fires and drought, my prayers are with you.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
