Dream






I was in the mood for a different type of vintage card, and was inspired by the sketch and black, white, pick another color challenges at Polka Doodles. I had this Tim Holtz stamp that I thought would make for a kind of dreamy looking card. So....I chose this purply/lavender color paper which was inspired by the colors of some of the cuffs in the Etsy Inspired Shop this week Ponder and Stitch, and just kind of went with it. I flipped the sketch so that I could spell out dream vertically. I cut out the letters using the Cricut Storybook cartridge. I used my Martha Stewart lace doily and branch punches. A few flowers and brads and a ribbon and that was it.
