It's January 3rd!

It's January 3rd, so that means the 2014 Occasions Catalog is now available to everyone!  You can see it all HERE.  While you're taking a look at the catalog, be sure to check out the new products I've included on this card:  Arrows Embossing Folder (page 26), Perfect Pennants Stamp Set and Banners Framelits Bundle (page 27).
Just a couple of notes about the stamped image.  I stamped the "Make A Wish" image using the Melon Mambo stamp pad.  Then, I cleaned my stamp and inked just the "a" with an Elegant Eggplant marker.  I punched it out with a 1/2" circle punch, and popped it up with a dimensional.  Why didn't I just color the entire image with markers?  Because the image sometimes looks a little "murky" and I prefer the crispness of the stamp pad whenever possible. 
To make the banner behind the "a" I just stamped the image on Crumb Cake, cut it out and flipped it over to the back. Leave a little bit of a border when you're cutting to make sure you cover up the stamped image underneath (on the white paper) completely.

The card is finished off with some Linen Thread wrapped several times and then tied in a bow.  I used a tiny drop of Tombow Multi glue to secure the bow to the card.

Here's everything I used:
