Dreams Come True

Happy Thursday!  If you haven't already heard, they're celebrating throwdown 100 over at the Color Throwdown this week and there are LOTS of prizes to be had, including some new Verve!  So head on over to their blog to play along and find out how to get yourself in the running for some stampy goodness! 

For my card, I pulled out each of the four colors of cardstock and PLAYED!  I didn't have a plan, a sketch or even a stamp set in mind... just stamping for the sheer joy of stamping.  How fun is that?!  :)  I loved how the colors looked all lined up on my desk, so decided to layer them together with a curvy border punch by EK Success.  On the celery layer, I stamped the hanging star from Always on My Mind, then painted them with a little Smooch luminescent pearlized top coat.  Next I covered a Bazzill chipboard star with some older baja breeze designer paper and ruffled up some white lacey ribbon, then tied it all together with a button and some cherry Divine Twine (love this stuff!)

The sentiment also comes from Always on My Mind and is stamped in Real Red and punched out with the curvy label punch, then I trimmed a thin mat of real red behind it, popped it up on dimensionals and added some cluster pearls to finish off the dreamy look I was going for.  Okay, that's it from me this fine Thursday.  Hope you can find some time to play along this week!  Have a fantastic day!
