Make A Wish

I had this die cut (from MME?) sitting around and just started playing with it, pulling things out and putting things together. I did a little rock-and-roll technique with the dandelion-looking flower. Then I remembered the "Make A Wish" sentiment from the Cupcake Collection and thought it was a perfect match for the dandelion. Don't you think so?

I used a bit of twine to make a little x on each side of the die cut. It just seemed to call out for something and buttons didn't look quite right. I like the bit of rustic twine.

I used an edge die from Tim Holtz on the front of the card. I put a bit of patterned paper on the inside flap so the edge would stand out a bit more. It doesn't stand up very well like this so I'm holding it so you can kind of see a little better how it looks.
