Wish Upon A Star Birthday Card

Hey there Ruby Rock-It fans!  It's Beck Beattie here today to share with a card teaming up the new Magic and Wonder Collection with some Tim Holtz Distress inks by Ranger.  They are such a perfect match!
Products Used:
Bella! Magic and Wonder Collection pattern paperz: Cut outs 
Bella! Magic and Wonder Collection pattern paperz: Stripe
Fundamentals Doilies FTE80
Fundamentals Bitty Bows FTE00
Francheville Card and Envelope Pack FLL01
Other products:

Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger - Picked Raspberry
The Distress inks really helped take my card to the next level and I'm excited to show you how simple that is!
Taking time to add some colour to the edges of your elements of your card can really make them pop!  
For the background paper I added a matching pink colour, working in a circular motion with the distress ink applicator and a craft sheet which helps the applicator to move smoothly without wasting lots of ink on scrap paper.
I also did some layering as part of the card and before adding the 'wish upon a star' cut out, I added some matching green colour to the edges.  

You can really see in these photos how the colour around the edges really makes a difference.  I just love this effect.  By choosing a different colour to the one added to the base pattern paper I added that little more interest while still keeping in with the overall colour theme.

I love to add a decorative element to the centre of my cards as well sometimes.   It really gives an extra touch to a handmade card.
Here are some more pictures of my sweet card.

I hope you enjoyed my share today.

Happy Crafting!
