Magical Wishes


Here is what started out as a Halloween card and ended up being a Birthday card for a special little boy.  That seems to happen quite frequently with me.  I used the "Abracadabra" image by Designed2Delight...reminds me of Harry Potter.  I used a Stardust glitter gel pen and some chunky glitter to the wand swirls to make it look magical.  I kept is pretty simple for a boy card.  No fancy ruffles, bows or jewels. For some reason I have the song, Do you Believe in Magic running through my head right now.

Now, for the inside of the card...
