Live Your Dreams!!!!

I thought I'd have another take of Keesh's challenge for this week. The Challenge was to case the current cattie for a layout...well this time I actually used the layout we used at the Regionals we had last weekend and used the new stamp set 'Live Your Dreams' which we also received, and will be available in the Summer Mini Catalogue (so keep your eyes open for more details on that one!!!!)

Here is my card:-
This really is a simple layout, and when it's altogether looks gorgeous.
I actually made this for my mum to give to a friend of hers who is leaving Australia for Italy to have medical treatment this week. (I made a little pen holder and covered some pens and a notebook for her and a little Keyring ala Keesh!! too - I'll post those a bit later!!!). So I've used Old Olive Card stock as the base and stamped it with the butterfly from the Stamp set then used the large flower and stamped that in Old Olive for the stems and Soft Sky for the flowers, then I re-stamped the flowers and cut them out added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds ( I'm a little obsessed with Dazzling Diamonds at the moment.. hahaha) and popped them up on some dimensionals. I stamped the little butterfly above the flowers in Really Rust and the sentiment ' A Little Something' is from the Level 1 Hostess set 'So Many Sayings' which I've stamped in Sahara Sand. The top layer of the card is in Soft Sky Cardstock which I've pierced and faux stitched and the bottom layer is a piece of Fall Flowers DSP and a bit of Soft Sky Double Stitched Ribbon.

Hope you like it.
