Dream, Wish, Believe

Happy Friday Ya'll!

Let me tell ya...it's been one of those weeks. I have a computer on the verge of crashing...ugg. So it took me forever to get these pics uploaded and I wasn't able to crop them to show the details like I wanted. So, I was happy just to get them on the blog period. So I apologize. The card looks prettier in person.

I started with a rustic cream card base adding an embossed Lunch Bag Kraft layer. I used the Letterpress technique.  
A poinsettia and leaves was die-cut from felt and layered on some beautiful lace trim which I have threaded with red satin ribbon. 

Embellishing touches include beautiful stick pins, a german glass glittered star, and a button laced with some Natural Hemp Cord
Finally a sentiment from Paper Sweeties You Make Me Smile was stamped on a banner in Real Red ink adding some Red Rhinestones for a touch of glitz. 

Inspiration for this card was found at the following:
The Ribbon Girl - Sparkle
 Catered Crop - Rustic & Lace
My Mum's Craft Shop - Winter Wonderland
Crafty Sentiments - Christmas

I am exited to share a recognition....my colorful Rainbow card was the winner at The Ribbon Reel. So honored!
Thank you for stopping by! I hope things slow down soon and I can catch up with you all!
