Make A Wish!

Whew! What a roller coaster ride the past few weeks have been! I had co-workers gone at a business conference & was left in charge & covering their clients. That along w/ all the stuff going on at home left me with no energy or time to craft. Plus with the days going back & forth between snow & 60 degrees, it's been hard to adjust & decide just what to do (I did get a little sun burned on Sunday... it was TOO nice to not be outside) So now that things are a little more "normal" I was able to sneak away to my craft desk & work on a needed birthday card:
For this one, I inked up a doily w/ Ranger Distress ink in Vintage photo so that it would match the color scheme (that white was a little blaring!) then I inked the edges of the tag w/ vintage photo & then used chalk ink to distress & frame the sentiment. the pearls are Recollections & the dp came from my scrap pile- this is one of my favorite color combos, so it wasn't hard to find scraps to work with! the buttons are some I picked up in the dollar bin at Micheal's & the stamps are from the birthday4cookie set by the {Stamps} of Life. I colored the candles in w/ my Prisma pencils.

I'm playing along w/ the following challenges:
Mojo Monday, Sketch # 231
Divas by Design, use your favorite things: my favorites are the color combo, using sketches (love sketches!) & distress inks
ABC Challenge, K:kraft
the Spotted Chick, That's Krafty Thursday
