Follow Your Dreams

LAST Monday of July…AND…I leave for SimGhosts tomorrow…WOO HOO!!!  But in the meantime ONE MORE inspiration challenge for this month.

So here’s our inspiration picture…

Now initially I was going to go with our absolutely DELIGHTFUL Dandelion set but when I looked at Connie’s card that is what she used so I decided to let the photo inspire me in a totally different direction.  I decided the Follow Your Dreams set and matching framelits give a similar feel as the dandelions in the piece.  Originally I was just going to  use greys, black, brown…like the piece but decided it needed a pop of color.  Then it sort of just got away from me BUT…I really like how it turned out!  Here it is…

Here’s the details…

  • Grey Granite – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Twinkle, Twinkle dsp – 3 3/4 x 5, layer onto Grapefruit Grove – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, wrap Black 1/8″ cord around panel and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Grey Granite – 2 1/2 x 4 1/2, stamp image in Versamark and white emboss, cut into a banner, sponge edges using Grey Granite and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Basic Black – cut out image, add to card front
  • Whisper White and Vellum – cut out feather, add to card both to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp little feathers in Memento Black, cut out, add to card front
  • Grapefruit Grove – cut out “dream”, add to card front
  • Nature’s Root Twine – Grapefruit Grove – tie small bow, add to card front

So…LOVE the way this turned out.  Honestly it was truly ‘inspired’ by the photo…but too a different route getting there!

Don’t forget we got an AWESOME collection for you…Love You to Pieces!  FOUR unique cards and not one but TWO 3D items!  You don’t want to miss this one!
