Hi everyone! It's Alyce here and I have a card to show with you using the gorgeous Wishes stamp by Some Odd Girl now available at The Stamp Spot. Isn't she magical? I love her beautiful hair and eyes :)

I have teamed Wishes with some My Mind's Eye papers, a doily, a spellbinders lacey circle in brown cardstock, and some gorgeous white jute ribbon. The flourish is a cheery lynn die - keep your eyes peeled for these arriving in store at The Stamp Spot soon :) 

How nifty are those type writer letters? They were a birthday gift from a friend at work - it is a 12 x 12 sheet from Typo in Australia that just has these letters all over it. I am going to use these for everything!! I have also added some texture using corrugated cardboard and some twine which I periodically knotted.

I have coloured Wishes using copic markers. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E50, E00, E53, E11, R11
Hair: Y00, Y21, E31, YR21
Dress: R20, R22, R29
Green: YG03, YG05

Challenges that I am entering with this card:

Make it Monday - Linky Party
Oozak - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe Crafts - Ribbon and Twine
The Kraft Journal - Use Your Stash
Craft Spot by Kimberly - Make it Pop (I have popped up Wishes using 3d foam dots to give her some added dimension! :)
