Make a wish...

This is the June Inkido moodboard:

I chose to use a vintage-inspired text-print background for my layout:

I used sketch #92 at Feeling Sketchy as my starting point, and a gorgeous A2Z Scraplets laser cut as the feature embellishment.  I painted the title in two contrasting colours, then covered with Dimensional Magic to give it shine:

I'm also submitting at Country View Challenges this month, for their Only Men Allowed theme.

Making Memories Scrapbook Colors - Ocean Blue acrylic paint
Kaisercolour Mango acrylic paint
Glitz Designs Beautiful Dreamer - Polka patterned paper

UPDATE 7/7/14:   My layout was featured as one of the Top Picks at Feeling Sketchy:
