Make A Wish

Happy Hello Everyone:

...and T.G.I.F. too.

I wanted to share a card I made a few weeks back. I purchased this Tim Holtz's die just after the Christmas holiday and I didn't want to wait another year or at least six months to use it. After I finished making the card, I thought it was a nice card to give to a male or female recipient celebrating a birthday--specifically during the month of March--having the green background supports that Irish springy kind-of-feel too. Although the BasicGrey Curio designer series paper's base color is green, it does not put me in mind of the Christmas holiday. Of course if you to change the paper theme...'WALLA' it could easily be associated with the Christmas holidays. Having this die is almost like having a two-for-one. I actually thought made a wonderful birthday card using Tim's die sentiment. In addition to the papers and the die, I used  SU dimensionals, Tim Holtz's distressing inks, a few brads, and ribbon to create this effect. I hope you like my'Make A Wish' card. I also hope my card provided a little inspiration for using products associated with specific holidays. Share your discoveries. What products do you use aside from it is intended for?

As always, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.
