Wish Big

Hello, all! Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday! It's a hot one for me today at 100 degrees here in my home town.

For today's card I stepped a little out of my box. Used an unusual color combo and design for me but, I think I'm pretty happy with it... Stamped a sentiment from Big & Bold Wishes in Scarlet Jewel and attached Scarlet Jewel ribbon strips to an Orange Zest cardstock strip. Attach the strip to a Raspberry Fizz card base. Cut a Fillable Frames #4 Harvest Gold die in half and attached it to the end of the Orange Zest strip.
Stamped and cut out an Orange zest bingo card from It's Official and attached. Used the tiny star from the same set and stamped it in Lemon Tart over the 11. Here's A Tip: This bingo card is perfect for making a birthday card even more personal, by highlighting the recipients age (if it's listed on the bingo card of course). Finished the card off with a few Harvest Gold & Raspberry Fizz buttons.

So glad you stopped by today! Hope your day is cooler than mine. :)
