Follow Your Dreams

Hello everyone!
I haven’t played in the Muse Card Challenge in a few weeks, so when I saw the card that Therese Calvird provided for this week’s inspiration, I decided to play along...Here is her card:



I was inspired by the CAS design and colors that Therese chose for her card, so my interpretation is quite literal. I used flowers and stems from a few different PTI stamp sets, and chose a sentiment from Clearly Besotted. I added a few gems and some Wink of Stella clear glitter, and I was finished.



And...since the large flowers are die cuts, I would like to submit this card to Virginia's View Challenge.

So, that’s it for me today...Thanks so much for stopping by ~
Barb

Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Bold Bouquet (dots and tiny flowers), Turning a New Leaf (leaves and stems), Daydreamer (lavender flowers)

Such a gorgeous card and a wonderful take on the Muse Card! I happily voted for YOU today!! Good Luck!!

I really like the airy look of your card. Your choice of a vine with smaller, more spaced leaves adds to the effect.
