Dreams Do Come True...Muse #134, Addicted to CAS #73~Dream, TIME OUT Challenge #40~Case Tracey

Hello again.

Another quick post!

Simple math to explain how I arrived at my card:

Muse #134, showcasing Anita's gorgeous embossed and water-coloured circles +


TIME OUT Challenge #40~Case Tracey, with a stunning card that is sponging and floral vellum luscious +


Addicted to CAS #73~Dream, which happens to be in a sentiment that needs some TLC

- (minus) having no circles to emboss or flowers to create from vellum + a 'thank you, but no thank you' to water-colouring (we are still soooooo on the outs!) + some *adapting*  = my card.

A STAMPlorations circle stencil, sponged with distress inks (inspired by Anita, of course), with a vellum butterfly (my translation of Tracy's flowers) and a 'dream' sentiment from Neat & Tangled...


Apologies for the annoying shadows on the butterfly...it is vellum, with a pretty shimmery silver foil paper body...

NOTE: Thrilled and delighted to be one of three Honorable Mentions at MUSE.  THANK YOU!

Thank you, Anita, Tracey and the Addicted to CAS team:  no way would I have arrived at this card on my own! I like it...really x really like it!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,
