Wishing Big

I made a few cards last night, and this one was for the Stamping 411 challenge.  I am on the kick of CAS cards right now: Clean and Simple.  And the ladies over on Stamping 411 gave me quite a great sketch to use for this CAS card.

I went digging around in my many, many folders of DSP, mostly now all retired or about to be retired in about 8 days.  Do you remember this paper?  I really love it, and it works so well for this card.

Not many details to share here.  Basically, I started off with a Whisper White base.  Then there's a layer of Tempting Turquoise.  Next a layer of the retired DSP.  I added some turquoise ribbon, and then I punched the sentiment (stamped in turquoise on white) using my 1 3/4" circle punch.  I punched out a 2" circle of turquoise.  I did use a yellow star brad to dot my "i" in "wish," and I finished the whole thing off with a button with a baker's twine knot.

I think they came out cute!  For this second card, I did basically the same thing, but I did add a different button.  Can you tell?

Thanks for looking!
