Make a Wish

Hello my crafty friends! Today was my day to post over at the Joy's Life Design Team blog.   We were asked to make a card or layout using cool folds.  I was so excited about this because I have never made a card beyond just folding it in half!! LOL!  I decided to go with an easel card since I have been wanting to make one of those FOREVER!!  I don't know why I waited so long to give this a try, it really is so simple to do!

I have to say tho, this is NOT one of my favorite cards I have done.  I was having a serious creative block and no matter what I did with the card, I just was never really happy.  Plus, it seems so many little things went wrong along the way... It's a wonder I even had this card done in time.  Well enough of that negativity! LOL! Here is my card, I hope it's not as bad as I think. :)

Make a Wish sentiment is from Joy's Life "Your So Punny", which you can view and purchase here.
