"Wish Big" With Some Paper Piecing and Paper Piercing for SSSC81

Happy Tuesday afternoon,

Here is my entry for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #81.  For this week's card, I used a new stamp to me, Winobella, from Stamping Bella.  I love Bellas! They make me laugh. This card is for my sweet friend Lisa's 50th birthday. Lisa is a crafter too, so I know she will appreciate getting this card for her birthday.

This week's sketch is pretty simple, and I thought a really fun one to work with. When it came to the four side elements, I immediately thought flowers, but then I remembered that I had a bag of these wine glass charms that I must have ordered years ago.  They are popped up on dimensionals, and I think they did the trick to fulfill the sketch element and to add a little extra zing to the card.  What do you all think?

The coloring is very minimal since I paper pieced Bella's dress to match the long side panel.  I also did some piercing in opposite corners with my SU Crafter's Tool Kit for added dimension.  All in all, a pretty quick card to make.
