Follow Your Dream


What a gorgeous day this was. I got outside and did yard work all morning, but I made some time to craft this afternoon. This cutie is Zoe by The Paper Shelter. She is so pretty. I made my first accordion fold flower. I used a die cut by Sizzix. The instructions said to cut at least 3 pieces to make the accordion pleat, but I used 4 as 3 just didn't seem like it was enough. I used some of the DP to make the flower.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:

Little Miss Muffet - Challenge #8 - Die Cuts and Punches

Totally Gorjuss - Challenge #78 - 123! (I used 1 flower, 2 buttons, and 3 DP)

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Something Beginning with C (I used a circle, and two of the Copic markers I used was Chartreuse and Celadon Green)

KB Cute Monday - Challenge #12 - Dots

The Paper Shelter - Challenge #12 - Bling It Up!

Paper Play - Week 18 - Show Us Your Style

Southern Girls - Challenge #16 - Let's Hear It For The Girls

Paper Romance Challenge - Use Your Favorite Die ~~

Here is my recipe for the card that I made:
Paper - CS is Stampin Up, DP is Hazel Papers by My Mind's Eye
Die Cuts - Spellbinder and Sizzix
Punch - Stampin Up
Markers - Copic Sketch and Spica pens
Buttons - Basic Grey
Bling - from my stash
Image - The Paper Shelter

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like what you see.
