Follow Your Dreams

Well, the weather is finally cooperating here in north Florida and the temps are actually dropping a little bit! That makes me so happy! I'm here this morning to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #40 - Seeing Dots! sponsored by the amazing Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and Lacy Sunshine Stamps! Come play with us! This is an easy one - we want to see your project with polka dots! They can be any size and any color!

I chose the absolutely adorable Wix's Moon Dreamcatcher digi for my inspirational card. I just love this image and she was so much fun! Sort of hippie-esque, don't you think?! And I dug into that fat stack of bold papers that I just love and grabbed some coordinating large dots, small dots and stripes. I matted all the elements on cranberry tart cardstock.

Isn't she just the cutest?! I cut her with a circle die and matted her on a lacy circle die cut. I added some white wrinkled ribbon and a multi-looped bow which I embellished with a red satin ribbon rose (very old... I've had these in my stash forever), and finished the front with some red flat back pearls.

I stamped a dreamcatcher on the inside, which I thought was very appropriate, along with an inspirational sentiment.

I would absolutely love to enter this inspirational card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury White and Cranberry Tart cardstock
  • Recollections Bold Basics paper pad
  • Lacy Sunshine Stamps Wix's Moon Dreamcatcher digital image
  • Copics: E00/33/99, C3, Y17, R85, YG63, YR18, V15
