I see tonight...

Wish Upon a Dandelion and Gypsophila stick Star.

I wish I may,

Dandelion seeds and baby’s breath star

I wish I might,

Wish Upon a Dandelion and Gyp Star.

Have this wish

Keep the design light and airy.

I wish tonight…

Wish Upon a Dandelion Star seen from the back.

We can wish for what we dream of upon a shooting star, keep our fingers crossed or puff a dandelion wish...

Fluffy dandelion and gyp star with barbed wire.

Or we could just get on with it and build the dream, one stick at a time...

About the title:
