Follow Your Dreams

This card was made for the challenge at Just Us Girls, as well as the Dream cue word at Addicted to CAS and the shiny theme at Less is More.

I started by stamping the Wide Stripes background stamp onto a white card base.  Using my Misti, I had to stamp it about 6 times to get good coverage!  I then stamped the floral stamp onto a white panel and colored it with Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiment was cut in half to make it fit and I then drew the dots with a multi-liner pen so it didn't look too offset.

A strip of gold foil card down each side and some gold sequins and my card was finished.

Thanks for visiting.

We'd love you to display our banner
