Cheery Make a Wish

Hi there!  Can you believe it's September already?  Yikes!  Christmas will be here before you know it!  Let's not waste any more time and get to today's card, which is another make-n-take the Hostess Club girls made.  Yep, more polka dots!  Inspiration for this card came from Susan Itell.  Love her work!  (Maybe she loves polka dots, too.  lol)  You can see her card here posted August 18th.  There were a few things I changed, like the placement of the stars.  Also there were some things omitted, such as the penwork on the stars and the Word Window sentiment.  The tag is a little different, too.  I decided to stamp the "a" on some scrap white cardstock with Strawberry Slush ink, punched it out with the 1/2" Circle Punch and popped it up on Dimensionals.  The ribbon was knotted and sits on top of the tag (adhered with glue dots) rather than looping it through the hole, which would have resulted in me ripping the tag.  (Don't know my own strength!  lol)  I love the cheeriness of this card and never would have thought of using this color combination.  Thanks Susan!
