Make a Wish!

Hi there!
Just popping in quick to share with you a card I made for the challenge over at Sieze The Birthday!  The theme is to make the sentiment the focal point.  And, here is my card...

For my card, I started with an aqua card base and paired it with black and white.  I water colored the next two panels.  Polka dot washi tape was added.  Glitter was placed on the stars and a little more water color along with some doodling around the borders.  Dots and ribbon for the final touch.  And, there you have it.  Just trying to experiment more with water color.  I still have lots of learning to do with it.  I'm not sure if it's my thing or!:-)  But, I do like the soft look of water color. 
Thanks for dropping by today!  Take care and have a great one!
