"Wish Big"

Hello Friends:)
OMG! are you all tired of this blazing HEAT???? I so want the WINTER to come, I'm very ready LOL!

Today, I have a card that I created using a sketch from Clean and Simple and thought it was perfect for a BIRTHDAY card, especially since my nephew's birthday is this Thursday.

Please make sure you join us Wednesday for another Challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate!!

I added some Dazzling Details to the star but I just added to much:( ,and I was already done with the card so bummed:(  I wanted to show you a close up so you could see the embossing on the Pacific Blue punched circles.
I used a range of size punch circles from Stampin' Up! and arranged them to fit around the sentiment.
