Wish Big

As you know by now, our challenge for this month at House of Cards is this lovely colour combo and this week it's the turn of the CAS team to show you what we can do with it.

This is my clean and simple take on it:

I must admit I found the colour combo a bit challenging to begin with as pinks and purples are not my normal go to colours but once I got my new Stampin Up sentiments the wish BIG sentiment gave me the inspiration to use my BIG candles from Hero Arts.   I stamped the candle 3 times using the two pale purples and the pink and fussy cut them out.  I added some partial embossing with some stars allowing them to fade into the middle.  I stuck the candles on top and then stamped the sentiment over the top of those in dark purple.  Finished with a little stickles and a star gem in the sentiment.

Can't wait to see what you all do with it now but remember to keep it CAS this week.


  1. Very creative. Love the little touch of embossing that you have done as well. Great job.

  2. This is lovely, love the sparkle and embossing

  3. A very nice card Tara, was not obvious to combine the colors! I love the sparkly candles and the embossed background!
    I wish you a beautiful day
