Dandylion Wishes

When you have quite a few Dies (which I 'may' do LOL!) it is easy to overlook one every now and then - I realised I have not used the Dandylion Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® and just had to rectify that!

I have created a fairly CAS card (Clean and Simple) layering the cut/embossed  Dandylion Die onto the Beaded Ovals Spellbinders® Nestabilities Decorative Elements.  All Dies have been cut/embossed using the  Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.

Glitter has been added to the dandelion to add a 'whimsical' touch.  I don't know about you, but just seeing this dandelion takes me back to my childhood, where we used to love blowing the 'fluff' or 'fairies' off the head of the dandelion - we didn't worry about the weeds that could grow because of them - we just 'lived out loud!'

The 'make a wish' sentiment is from SRM Stickers. The larger sentiment is by Stampin' Up! - probably retired by now I would think, but a fabulous set!   Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner have been used on this card.
