Dream


I dare you to dream
Dream of what you can do,
And what you will do.
Dream of who you are,
And who you'll become.
Never believe that dreams are for fools,
The fools are those who don't dream.
Sarah C. Ward

The inspiration collage for Jay Gee's Nook's Challenge is so dreamy. When I think of dreamy in the stamping world, chalks come to mind. They create such a soft and imperfect look...


May you always have happy dreams, sweet friends.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (Vintage Cream) PTI, (Creamy Caramel) SU
Stamps: (Modern Basics) PTI
Ink: (Versamark), (Vintage Photo, Antique Linen Distress) Ranger
Other: (Chalk) SU

  3. Hi Karen,
    Your card is dreamy in the design elements (like the butterfly dreamed it could break free of the patterns) and the chalk makes the colors dreamy, too. A perfect card - I love it!
    Hugs!
