Make a wish

Hey y'all! I'm back today, to share a card I made for the current Casology challenge!!

I really got down to the wire, on this one! After seven (yes, seven.) mess ups, I finally got my card right! One thing about being a perfectionist, is I don't let little things slide. So, when I see the slightest crook in something, I keep fixing/trying/start over until it's straight to me (I'm that bad)! And that's what led me to waste seven cards...I couldn't get my sentiment straight...until now (my eighth card)!!

So, I saw "star" and thought about it. What came to me, was a twinkling star. You ever look up in the sky and out of all the stars, you find that one that seems to stand out, from the others?....Well, I always seem to find it that way.

For my card, I used some refill ink on a paint brush and flicked it onto my card for a bunch of stars. I then added my one little 'stand out' star. To make it stand out even more, I added a little rhinestone in the middle of it.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!! Merry Christmas! :)
