Dreams Du Jour a la Bella Rose

I had this "Dreams" image from a previous project in my extras box and thought it would work perfectly for the Blogger's Challenge sketch I used for last Friday's sketch. The red and pink check from the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper seemed a good choice to go with it. Red Riding Hood card stock was used for the card base. I stamped the DSP with the pretty butterfly in the set then the corners were treated with the Ticket Corner Punch. This was layered on the base and a large dot was added at each corner with the white gel pen.

I layered the "Dreams" image on a red scallop circle die cut with the Big Shot and the Pennant Die, then layered that on two more black scallop circles punched with the same die. A strip of white card stock punched on each long edge with the Eyelet Border Punch was layered on the check DSP and Riding Hood Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon was placed down the center. Another piece of ribbon with the ends looped was adhered and then the image was added to the center of that with Dimensionals.

For the finishing touches, "Congratulations" was stamped with VersaMark then embossed with Black Embossing Powder. I added Crystal Effects to the flowers on the main image and lightly sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds over it and laid it aside to let it dry. I think you can see a touch of the glimmer in the larger photo. I like the way this turned out; this pretty image has ended up on a card that has a rather "country" feel to it!
