Dream BIG and share the love

Happy Friday!

First---I want to pass on a request from a fellow stamping friend. Erin Bailey asked me to help spread the word about a card drive she is organizing for her next door neighbor, Paige, who is 12 and recently had her arm amputated after a boating accident. I cannot even imagine what this family is going through. Please Click here for her post with a direct link to the most recent newspaper article.

Next--a card....
I stamped the main image twice on watercolor paper and then clear embossed it. I water colored the images with SU reinkers and a paint brush. One image is cut and layered on top of the other image.I added some crystal stickles over the flowers and butterfly.The sentiment is from Botanical Dreams from Gina K Designs .I used my Spellbinders circle, scalloped circle and oval dies to cut out the image and sentiment.

Materials used: Stamps: Inkadinkado, sentiment-Botanical Dreams (Gina K Designs); Paper: white-Pure Luxury (Gina K Designs); designer paper-Black &Cream Script (The Paper Studio), Blue Paisley (Out & About) ; Ink: Memento Tuxedo black ; Accessories: paper piercing tool, clear ep, SU reinkers, paint brush, heart charm, tulle, Spellbinders dies, Cuttlebug, silver cord, crystal stickles (Ranger)

Finally---wishes for a great (labor day-US) weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
