Make a Wish

Happy Friday! This card is sort of a fast card because it is a case of another card. When you case a card, you can make it so much faster than if you had to think of the layout and supplies, then create it. I did make some changes to it, such as add the velvet scallop trim, tag, and pins. The original card is posted here. I had so much fun making the first card, I had to make another.

We're enjoying New Orleans (as you can see in my tweets)! Today, we went to the lower ninth ward to photograph Susan G. Komen giving a 'big check' to the only health clinic within the area (since hurricane Katrina). Tomorrow we'll be at the festival and then of course there's the concert! Can't wait!

Enjoy your holiday weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by.

Well, I adored the first one but this is just stunning! I love the proportion of the papers and the added elements! Wow! I don't know what they will ask you to submit for the Idol contest, but something like this would surely make you a winner!!
Happy 4th!
