Close your eyes, make a wish & blow !!

This is my card for the ICS challenge this week. I had a bit of a diseaster as I read my email wrong and the image I used below had been printed out for next weeks challenge not this week. Ooops!! So I had to hurry and make this card before my deadline. That will teach me not to read my emails properly. I thought it was only fair to use the image provided by the sponsor as they were sponsoring us too and not one I already had. Then whilst under pressure the following words came into my head "Close your eyes, make a wish & blow!!" This was a memory from my past (well not that long ago) of what I do when I pick a dandelion seed head. So with out further or do here is my card sponsored by In Style stamps

The Sketch

 I used:  Digi image - In style stamps & My Minds Eye - Dandelion stamp
Scrap paper, hessian from stash
Woodware punch - flowers 2 sizes
Promarkers to colour
Own sentiment

Thank you for taking the time to browse.
