Dream BIG!

Hello!!!! My apologies for not posting in a while, but things are SUPER busy in my little corner of the world:} I hope your week has been going beautifully!!! Today, I wanted to show you a card I created using one of the new stamps from The Peekers Collection at SCACD and this sweetie is named "Daydreaming Peeker". She was created by Elisabeth Bell exclusively for SCACD Stamp Co., and isn't she a doll baby? I love her...probably because she reminds me of my niece, Savannah...she {{HEARTS}} her tutus and I {{HEART}} her!!!

This little darling was colored with Prismacolor markers, and the color palette was inspired by this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge. They are showcasing the lovelies available at Think Fast Designs...and I chose to use the beautiful colors in THIS gorgeous, vintage pendant. I was quite fortunate to have fallen in love with this particular necklace cuz I recently received the stunning Bo Bunny papers from the Gabrielle Collection...which has some sheets that match these colors perfectly:) BINGO! BANGO! BAM! I love it when these things simply fall into place!! Don't you? Of course, it very seldom works out so easily for me...usually, I struggle to find the "right" papers and embellies...BUT not this time:) Wahoo!! I am enjoying the moment! Heeheehee...

I don't know if you can see it in the above photo, but a coating of Creative Inspirations Paint in Fairy Dust was painted on her adorable tutu and her jewelry box...just to add a touch of sparkle. For a bit more sparkle, a teensy bit of Stickles was added to her hair accessory and the ballerina (in the jewelry box) along with hints of Viva Decor Pearl Pen to adorn the exterior of the jewelry box. What can I know how I l-o-v-e my sparkle;)

Well, I think I have taken up enough of your Thursday. I hope your day is overflowing with blessings, laughter and love! Thank you SO much for dropping by! I will be back tomorrow with something fun:) Have an AWESOME day!!!!

Today's card was also inspired by the following amazing challenges:

OOoOOoOoooH this is GORGEOUS! (I need to learn more descriptive words, lol... but this one is the one you get :)!) I LOVE the tutu and pearls. The flowers grouped in the corner and decorated with string of pearls add such a sweet, soft, touch while still looking 'little girly' to match the image. Pretty pretty bow and I love the dream big tag in the center. Reminds me of when my DD was a little ballerina... now pre-teen more elegant ballerina mixed with a little attitude, a little goofiness, a little tie dye and spunk... all mixed in with the the extra sweet, loving, caring girly girl beautiful spirit within her.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful creation with us all. I always love to stop by and admire your lovely creations.
