Chasing Dreams

     This cute image is from Bugaboo Stamps and it reminds me of fun summer days as a child.

I was inspired by the colors at Catch the Bug and 
used the sketch at Stella Says Sketch.


     I used ProMarkers to color the image, then cut it with an Unbranded die.  The three papers for the background and the ribbon were all scraps.  In fact, the green polka dot piece was so small, I had to cut it in two and add the pieces so that they would show at the top and bottom of the image, giving the illusion of being one, long piece.

     The bow was hand made from white ribbon but I 'dyed' it with a ProMarker to get that color of pink.

Nothing better than chasing bugs and butterflies when I was young - and also "helping" the grandchildren do the same thing when they were young.
Love that image and of course it's beautifully colored. So much fun and such a delightful card!
