Sister Wish

Splitcoast CAS - CASwinter10CR

Well, I made it into the semi-finals for the Clean & Simple DT competition with my
What If Christmas card. How fun is that?! {grin} You should check out all the talent displayed in the cards that were entered - Amazing!

The challenge for the next round is to make a holiday/birthday CAS card for a family member using their title (mother, husband, son, etc.) I chose to make a birthday card for my sister. Birthdays make me think of wishes and wishes make me think of dandelions! So, this
Dandy Wishes set seemed like the perfect choice.

Purple is my sister's favorite color. I started off by printing the word "Sister" in Elegant Eggplant (Gabriola font) on a sheet of white cardstock. There's this great
SU! Color Value Chart that I found on Splitcoast where you can look up how to customize any SU! color you want to use for printing.

I made an oval template with a piece of scrap paper and an oval nestie. The dandelion silhouette is stamped in black Stazon with amethyst, lavender and eggplant inks sponged around it. 'Make a Wish' is stamped in Elegant Eggplant.

And that's it! As always, thanks for visiting and I wish you the beary best!
