Wish Big -- for So Suzy Stamps

So Suzy Stamps is having a design team call!  Since I love their stamps and their products, I thought I would give it a go.  I'm Wishing Big, as my card says!

I used a rubber stamp from So Suzy Stamps, of course!  This is the Dandelion from the Dandelion & Fluff set.  Remember making wishes on dandelions when you were a kid?  That's what I'm doing with this one.  I'm hoping and wishing for a spot on the wonderful So Suzy Stamps design team.  Yes, I'm wishing big!  (sentiment is a stamp from Craftin' Desert Divas.)

I stamped the Dandelion using Memento ink, then used 3 different Tim Holtz distress inks to color in the fluff -- Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, and Squeezed Lemonade.  I started with the darkest color in the middle (Scattered Straw), then worked my way out using a sponge dauber.  

I used 2 sizes of a Spellbinders oval die to cut out the Dandelion.   Papers and ribbon are from Close To My Heart.  I used a card sketch from this week's Eureka Stamps challenge so I could play along. 

If you are visiting my from So Suzy Stamps, please have a look around and let me know if you have any questions.  My email is julienodil at gmail dot com     Thank you for looking!!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
