Make a Wish

Vera was so kind to leave a comment on my blog so I checked out her blog. She has lots of great cards and I saved a couple in my Favorites folder to use for inspiration.

I loved this card of hers and I knew that it would be a great layout to use for my almost 14 year old nephew's birthday that is later this month. Like so many stampers, I struggle making masculine cards. I think my nephew has received birthday cards with stars on every year since I started stamping! Hopefully he'll realize it is because I think he is a star. For the sentiment, I used my new Papertrey Ink Stamp set, Mixed Messages that Santa brought me. I think those little sentiments are going to be quite useful.

Here is what I did on the inside:
