Follow Your Dreams

It’s Monday!!!  And it’s back to school for me!  We start back this week with meetings then classes next week.  BUGGER!  Where did my summer go?  But since it is Monday it is a fun day with another inspiration.

So here’s our inspiration picture…

LOVE the pretty colors and decided to go with that.

The Follow Your Dreams bundle has been sitting on top of my desk so I went with that.  It’s hard to see in the picture but the second feather is Gold Foil and Dream and the it little ‘sun’ in the center are both Night of Navy.

Here’s the details…

  • Coastal Cabana – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5
  • Whisper White – cut out 4 detailed circles, add to panel and trim off edges, layer onto Night of Navy 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Twinkle Twinkle dsp – 1 1/4 x 3 1/4, add to card front
  • Gold Glimmer – 1/4 x 3 3/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out largest layering circle, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Coastal Cabana – cut out dream catcher, add to card front
  • Gold Glimmer and Gold Foil – cut a feather from each, add to card front
  • Night of Navy  – stamp sun in Versamark, gold emboss, cut out and add to card front using dimensionals

Follow Your Dreams

Happy August everyone!  It’s ‘back to school’ month for so many of us (me included)…say it ain’t so!  And while you are reading this, I’m in Memphis at the SimGHOSTS conference and I am sure I am learning TONS!  But in the meantime, there’s a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and a happy color combo…

If you had checked out my Monday post, you know that I used the AWESOME Follow Your Dreams bundle.  You know me…”if it is sitting on top of my desk” I tend to use it again.  And sure…these are REALLY natural colors for feathers…RIGHT?!  LOL!!!

Here’s the details…

  • Lovely Lipstick – 4 1/4 x 11 foled
  • Sahara Sand – 1 3/4 x 4 3/8, run through the Maps Etc embossing folder, add to card front
  • Regals dsp Paper Pack – Blackberry Bliss – 2 x 4 3/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out medium frame (Stitched Seasons), add to card front using dimensionals
  • Sahara Sand – cut out dream catcher, add to card front
  • Lovely Lipstick and Blackberry Bliss – cut out feathers, add to card front
  • Silver Foil – cut out ‘dream’, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Black 1/8″ Cord – tie small bow add to card front

It’s that a cool and different way to use the colors?  I thought so!  (And it was “sitting on top of my desk”!)
