A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes....

Do you have a special dream? Something you secretly wish, deep in
your heart, will happen for you someday? I think we all have one (or
more!) and I also think we can make these dreams come true if we
just God, in our family, in ourselves!! This card was inspired
by just those types of dreams!!

The idea came to me, when I saw the "Once Upon A Time"inspiration
challenge over at Our Craft Lounge (OCL)'s challenge #OCL91.

And the card was inspired by this stamp set:

Spring Sketches from OCL. If you follow my blog, you might remember
a card last week "You Brighten My Day". It just used the stamps "as is".
Do you ever look at a stamp and wonder what it could become? It's one
of my favorite things to do! Below is how I used these stamps to make
the Cinderella "Pumpkin Carriage"....

I punched the center out of the large flower to make the wheels....
I stamped the tulip twice to make the "pumpkin". I made the
pumpkin twice, and cut a "slice" off of one side, and added it to
make the carriage a bit bigger. The line was stamped twice to
make the reins. And again the result was this card....

The twine from "The Twinery", I made the stick pins with various beads
in my stash, the paper is the MME Lost & Found "Madison" collection,
the rosette is from MME as well, the "believe in yourself" is from Unity,
and I used Spun Sugar and Vintage Photo distress inks. believe in yourself, and your dreams!! And give yourself
the time to "go for it"!!!

Stay tuned....tomorrow....the beginning of a weeks worth of fun.....
