Make a Wish ATC


I used digital collage elements from the Lunagirl Moonbeams Pink Flappers (woman) and the Pink Collection (flowers). The flapper was a happy mistake. My printer ran out of ink during the printing so the image came out entirely pink. I don't like to waste so I used it for my ATC. The ATC is embellished with a die cut star, a scrap of pink lace, washi tape and glitter.

I would like to enter this ATC in the following challenges:

Bunny Zoe - Bingo (flowers+lace+sentiment)
Pink Gem - #124 spots+stripes
