Dream Today

Good Wednesday morning blog friends. I am so glad that you stopped by today.

Here is my card for Paper Pretties Wednesday's Flower Challenge. I used Dream Quotes Stamp Set to make this for my dear friend's daughter who is graduating from nursing school. Congratulations Emily, I am so proud of you.

I just love this designer paper from Graphic 45. It is called "Le Romantique" and I thought that it would be perfect for today's flower challenge and I the colors are so lovely.

Now for the punched layer. I found this wonderful tutorial from Becca Feeken. Pleas visit her blog Amazing Paper Grace to see how make a "Perfect Punched Border Frame" with a straight border punch. Becca is a very kind lady who is so willing to share her amazing talent as an artist. Please take time to visit her and say hi.

For this card I used Fleur de Lis border punch by EK Success. It was easy and her tutorial is very good. I wanted to layer the punched piece to make it pop so it adhered it to a piece of Peach Parfait with removable tape and just cut around it with scissors. When I was sure that I liked how it looked it adhered it with permanent adhesive.
