Wish BIG

If you have to make a wish on your birthday, you might as well make it a BIG one!  My card today took on the Diva Coffee Break Color Challenge 196 and Butternut Sage Easy Sketch.

Talk about clean and simple.  This card was just that.  My base is Regal Rose.  On top of that I added a layer of Concord Crush card stock.  Using Whisper White Craft Ink, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, and the Heat Tool, I embossed the sentiment from the Word Play stamp set on a piece of Concord Crush from the In Color Patterns Designer Series Paper.  This was attached to the bottom of the Concord Crush layer.  I embossed a strip of Baja Breeze card stock with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder because the design is very similar to the pattern in the designer paper.  This was added to the Concord Crush layer above the dsp.  The finishing touch was a bow made with the Pear Pizzazz ribbon.  An easy card to make; would probably be good for a workshop or class with beginners.  For me, I guess it just fits in with a very slow moving Monday.
