A hundred wishes Birthday card and an Easter treat!

If you have not checked out the A Muse Studio spotlight special projects for March, you are missing out on CUTENESS!!! Love the ideas!!! Here's one of the pics! Isn't that adorable?!!!


Here's the link so you can check out all the super fun ideas: https://www.amusestudio.com/studio-spotlight-march-2013.asp

One of my favorite new sets in the catalog is a hundred wishes. I *heart* the sentiment. :) Lots of childhood memories blowing dandelion seeds into the air (my mom was not as thrilled as I was - lol!).

Here's the set: 

 And, here's my card:
I've made this card on a variety of pastel cardstocks: lemon whip, sky, pistachio and also on brighter cardstocks like the lime pictured here. It's great on all of them. I used the quickie glue pen and some diamond glitter on this version but have also used champagne glitter. wonderful effect. One tip is that the stem is very thin so you want to practice stamping with it to get used to how much pressure to put on it so you don't rock it and get a shadow. But, if you do - no worries. There are lots of empty dandelion stems after the seeds blow off in the wind. :)

The inside of this one is a birthday card using the itty bitty birthday "make a wish" sentiment and "happy birthday" from essential sentiments.  On others, I've just used the make a wish and the floating dandelion seeds. I put a little glitter on the base of the seeds to carry out the glitter from the front. :)

I hope you have a hundred wishes and a field of dreams!

Have a wonderfully creative day!
