Make a Wish Layout

We have recently had several birthdays in my family so I created this layout using the Sweet Treat cartridge.
I took a different approach to this layout and decided to use the tags and presents as photo mats for my pictures.  The photo mats and cake were embossed for added texture.
The die cuts were embellished with some Stickles and doodling with my white gel pen.  Some bling was added to the paper flowers.
Some coordinating ribbon tied onto the tag finished off the layout by providing the perfect accent for the layout.
