Make a Wish . . .

Happy Friday Everyone!
And, what a beautiful Friday it is here in NE Ohio!
We are having new doors put on our home so I'm hiding in the cave today! 
 (photos coming soon)
I need to get back to making show projects but just wanted to take a break and create something for fun.  When I spotted THIS CARD while looking through my blog feed,  I knew immediately I wanted to create something similar that I could then add to my sale box of Birthday cards for next weeks show.  What do you think?


Really an easy & quick card but I think it packs a lot of ooohhs & aaawww's too!
Once again I got to play with my TH Oxide inks to create the background panel, but I really love how the Tutti Designs Layered Stitched Square dies made such a quick and pretty frame to show it off!

Clean & Simple design is NOT my forte but I'm trying!  LOL

Challenges I've found to share in are:

 The Crafter's Cafe Challenge #181 - Stitching (faux or real)

I hope you have a FABULOUS weekend ahead!

So, so pretty, and how very clever to have the balloon string behind the frame, I love that. Also love your colors, purple and orange are always so striking together. The color wheel works, doesn't it? Awesome card, I'm pinning!!!
