Wish Upon A Star


When I read the title of my project I just can’t help thinking of the Disney song lyrics:

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you…

What more can I say about those words.  They have so much meaning to all of us.

And today I bring you the sweetest image from McMahon Five Designs.  The image is appropriately named “Wish Upon a Star”.   My card is below the M5D Images.  And all details about my card will be below my photos.

How do you like the sun?  I began an old hobby again that I used to do many years ago.  I started Quilling.  Of course I started off with a beginners kit and when I saw the sun I just knew it would be perfect embellishment for my card.  Did you ever feel like all thumbs?  Well I did when I began quilling.  But I’m beginning to get the hang of it again.

Here are the details of my card:

  1. This is so sweet, Fran! Your shading is excellent! Your quilling is perfect!!! The card base is beautiful. I would for you to do a tutorial on making a card base with a Nestie!
    Thanks for sharing,

  2. this is such a pretty card Fran! great job on you sun.

  3. Lovely, Fran. Sometimes I wish I could use these digis myself, but I have no color printer and can't color them neatly myself.

  4. Fran, your card is adorable and I love the star you made for it. It is perfect.

  5. This is gorgeous Fran - love your quilled sun :-)

  6. I was going to learn to quill and I have a ton of supplies in the craft stash... I should box it all up and send your way. You'll use it faster than I have since it has been a part of my "collection" now for far too long! Your card is beautiful!
