Embrace the Dream !

     A card using my favorite purples and lots of flower embellies.  Those of you who follow my blog regularly can fall over from shock right now since it's also a shaped card -- something I make so rarely as to be a complete surprise.  :-D  The image, called "Penny with Butterflies," was a freebie from the FB page of Stampin' with the Dragon.  Isn't it precious?

     I forgot to photograph the inside sentiment but it says "Embrace the Dream."  I colored the image with my favorite ProMarkers and added velvet glitter to the fairy's wings and the butterflies.  I die cut the image, and used a large circle die to cut the card base shape, then shaved off the bottom to keep it from rocking.

     The flowers are all from my stash and the little lilac bow is one of those I make myself and then throw in my stash to have them at just the right time.

     That's it for me today and unless something changes, I probably won't have a post tomorrow.  The schedule is getting really busy and I need to focus some attention on things other than crafting for a bit.  I may not get around to visiting all of you right away so be patient with me.  I'll be back before you know it.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

This image is adorable and of course I love the purple. Pretty shades on the flowers. I don't make shaped cards very often either. Don't worry about visiting, we all have things to do other than blogging at times. I have been terrible lately myself, like anything outside. LOL Enjoy your day, NC.

Really fun image. The coloring is great. I'm not on FB. Do you get many images there? I might have to sign up. I don't do shaped cards much either. What made you so daring today? Hugs, Debi
