Make Wishes Come True

My card today is for the House-Mouse & Friends challenge #113 to use the theme "make wishes come true." They've graciously invited me to do a couple February guest design spots, and I'm very happy to join in the fun!
I used the "balloon ride" image for this, coloring with Copics, and sponging the sky in with tumbled glass ink. I cut the image using a top note die, and added a computer generated sentiment {I wish I could fly} with a flower and gemstone in the center. The dsp is from Pink Paislee and I used scraps of pink and blue. This little guy looks like he's getting the flight of his life doesn't he?
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great Monday!
