Dare To Dream

Happy Saturday! I was able to get some major inky time in today, I haven't been able to do that that much lately...getting back from vacation simply puts you one week behind. I think I'm finally caught up and wanted to participate in this week's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast. Sometimes I can look at their sample pictures forever and not come up with anything, but today was different...the first picture I clicked on clicked in my head. You can see the inspiration photo from Harabu House here, and below is my card based on this picture:

Lots of glitz on this card, the sparkly frame is a die cut from K & Co. and beneath that I made an accordion medallion and covered it with a mini medallion, then a Spellbinder's banner. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Loving Thoughts set. A silk bow, a rhinestone brooch, stick pins and lace finish off the card.
Have a great night~
