Believe in your Dreams....

Good Morning!!!!  Don't think I'll be that chipper tomorrow when I'm back to work and the weekend is over...then again, I just might  LOL  I am just loving the weather lately!  I'm seeing a lot of people complaining on FB about how too cold it is for summer...blah blah blah.  I don't have a/c and I work from home so when it's too hot - its way too hot!!  and fall is my favorite time of the year, so I'll take this weather any time!!

Today I have a card of encouragement to share with you

I used slate cardstock for the base, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, a dark purple layer, 4 x 5 1/4, the pattern paper 1/8th of an inch smaller.  The pattern paper is My Mind's Eye, Miss Caroline, Fiddlesticks "You & Me" Bloom paper.  I used scraps for the rest of the project.  The decorative mat is cut from Elegant Edges at 4".  I used button 3, Scallop1.  The bottom green layer is cut using the oblong shift and the white frame is cut using the oblong frame feature (no shift).  The ballet slippers are cut using Creative Memories This & That cartridge at 2 1/2".  I used flower shaped rhinestones around the frame and for the bow on the slippers.  I don't have the packaging for this anymore, but I'm pretty sure I picked them up on clearance at Joann's.  I also used stardust glitz on the slippers for a little extra sparkle.

I used a dark purple mat again on the inside with a cream color mat.  The stamp is a studio g wooden stamp from the dollar section at Michaels.  I used markers to ink the stamp so I could use the different colors.  I used the same MME pattern paper as a border using an EK Success border punch.  Again with this, I don't have the packaging and the name isn't on the punch itself.

I think it came out so pretty, sparkly and feminine!  Have a great day!!!
