Good morning and Lord Almighty, it's Friday!
I could get to liking this 11 days off 3 days on thing...

So.... back to our regularly scheduled programming...

Today's birthday card was inspired by something someone said to me yesterday about making wishes and getting so much more than what you are hoping for. I guess I figure when it's your birthday, you should always get what you wish for, no matter how big it might be. *smiles*

The card base is a 5-1/4 x 10-1/2 piece of blush pink textured cardstock folded in half. I layered a 5 inch square of polka dot DP from the Fancy Pants Designs Winterland 6x6 assortment over the front and then followed it with a smaller panel (note, the one torn edge) and a third strip of a striped print that I trimmed with a punched edge of Soft Sky.
The edging was done using Fiskars' Threading Water punch and was adhered to the reverse side of the striped piece.
The polar bears are stamped on Neenah Solar White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics. I layered this on a slightly larger square of Soft Sky and another of the blush pink and then added a little 2-way glue along the edges of the white and on the bears so I could give it a dusting of glitter.  This piece was then mounted directly to the card.
The "wish" sentiment is stamped and punched with a 1-1/2 inch circle punch, glittered around the edge and layered on a 1-3/4 scallop circle of Soft Sky. Two foam dimensionals; one between the layers and one behind pop the sentiment up a bit but I also punched two small holes in the scalloped circle and threaded some baker's twine through, looped it around the card a couple times and tied it off in a bow before securing it to the card.
A little swirl of clear gems finishes the whole thing off.

Have a wonderful weekend!
