Delightful Challenges Make a Wish

Make a Wish Challenge

This challenge must have a candle or star in it.

Our sponsor this week is...
The prize is a $15 gift certificate.

Again Digital Delights has the best images for this challenge.
I had a hard time picking one!!  
But I decided on Birthday Cake Josh, 
and what better sentiment than the Birthday Sentiment Set.

Here is the front of the card...

And here is the inside of the card...

When I saw the scalloped circle, I knew what I wanted to try.
Now I had tried this before...cutting a window in the front of the card 
and having the image inside the card.
But I failed at it.  I didn't have the window centered right.
Well since then I have wondered how to make sure I centered it when I put the card in my Cricut.
It dawned on me as I was debating on putting a window in this...
don't center it.  
Who said the window had to be dead center? 
When I was looking for the paper to go with this card,
I found this cute page from the "Celebration Stack" from DCWV.
The paper had the birthday cake with candles and the "make a wish" sentiment.  
So I used the lower right hand corner of the page to use the cake.
I cut the "Make a Wish" off the top of the page and added it below the cake.
The 'window' frame on the front and inside is part of the Birthday Sentiment Set
as well as the "birthday boy".
I colored the image with a combination of Prismacolor Pencils and Copic Markers.
Copics: E000, E00, R20, E25, E37, BV12, YG25, R29.
Prismacolor pencils:  PC 915, PC1001, PC 1103.

Can't wait to come see your project for Delight Challenges'
