Dream Big

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  It's time for the  Viva la Verve! May Week 4 sketch and this week's hostess is Moe!  I had lots of ideas for the big circle element, so I just might be trying this sketch again sometime.

Since Words of Wisdom was still on my desk, I decided to pair this dream big sentiment with some fabulous prints from the aptly named {Fabulous} collection by Simple Stories.  The card really came together very quickly.  I stamped the sentiment on the circle, outlined the word big with distress markers, sponged some edges with distress inks, then accented with a butterfly charm and orange rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.  I finished off with a little chocolate bow and the butterfly from Twitterpated cut with the All Aflutter Die Set.

Okay, that's all from me today.  Remember, if you play along with all 5 of the May Viva la Verve! sketches you'll be entered to win a $100 gift certificate to Verve!  Woohoo!  Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
