Sweet Wishes

Taking a break from Christmas because I need to get a jump on my January birthday cards. With 2 nieces, a nephew, a sister and a couple of friends with birthdays in January, I need to get an early start. Here is one I made using Clean and Simple's Fall-to-Layout #70. I love this easy to create sketch, and will definately be using it again! For this card I clear embossed the polka dots onto a cocoa card base (fun technique with a cool look - you should try it!) I also stamped the diamond image with cocoa ink onto a hot pink piece of scrap. I thought it needed just a bit of another color, so I added the aqua ribbon and flower brad just to amp it up a bit.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
