{Make a Wish in Pink}

Make a Wish in Woodgrain2



Good Afternoon friends! Today I am back with a card that I couldn't wait to post! For this card I used the adorable stamp set from The Crafts Meow called Butterfly Kisses. I stamped the main image in Stampin Up Pretty in Pink. To create the beautiful lace background die cut I used the Cornish Heritage Farms "Lace" backgrounders and Latte pigment ink from A Muse Studio. I am thrilled with the end result, it looks like REAL lace. Have I told you lately how much I love A Muse Studio ink? lol, ok, I guess I have but I do, I really really do.  The woodgrain background is actually card stock from A|S as well. I added scalloped trim using SU's ribbon scallop punch, and then I added a line of stitching on each side. I stamped the sentiment using onyx black Versafine ink. The pretty flower is from Recollections, and I added my favorite card embellishment, twine.  Now, it is a little difficult to see in the picture, so here is a close-up:

I was inspired by the beautiful card by Michelle Wooderson to try my hand at adding a "splash" of white acrylic paint. I followed the method she posted on her blog and I LOVE the way it turned out! It adds such pretty texture and dimension to the stamped image. Speaking of texture I am playing along with the "Textured to Perfection" Challenge at Moxie Fab World. My card is chock full of texture and dimension! I am also playing along with the following challenges:
