Make a Wish with Mojo Monday 197

I LOVE making cards that are not standard size, and something especially draws me to square cards.  I think it's because I crave a sense of symmetry. 

Anyhow, I just loved the Mojo Monday sketch this week, so I had to give it a whirl this morning for a birthday card I need this week.  Here it is...

I'm linking it up to the Mojo Monday Sketch 197

I used a piece of white cardstock for the base & cut it down to 4 x 4 square.  I used a piece of polka dot paper from American crafts in a slightly smaller square and rounded all of the edges.  I used some new stamps I got from the dollar bin at Michael's called i-cling.  I  stamped the candles in SU Basic Black and colored them with markers and stamped "Make a Wish" in SU Pixie Pink.  I mounted that square on some green scraps I had that coordinated to the polka dots in the paper.  I added a little blue/turquoise ribbon to the bottom and top of the sentiment and topped it off with a big pink button.  I think it turned out cute, and I think it will make the recipient smile. 

What do you think? I absolutely LOVE reading your comments. :)

Have a wonderful day!
