Dare to Dream

This card came about mostly because I sat down with a goal of using Harvest Berries. It's one of those sets (ok, there are probably several others, lol) that I loved when I saw it, I bought it because I had to have it, and I love so many projects that I see with it. But, it just doesn't get used as much as it should! I also wanted to try my new Raspberry Fizz ink and paper, so here it what I ended up with:


I used Aqua Mist paper and stamped Harvest Berries with Hawaiian Shore and then stamped Text Style 2 with Versamark. I added some berries with Raspberry Fizz. For the sentiment focal point, I stamped Harvest Berries again with Aqua Mist, but stamped off first so that it would just be a very subtle silhouette background. The sentiment, from Daydreamer, is then stamped on top with Raspberry Fizz. I used Limitedless Layers circle and scalloped circle dies, and cut and stamped a little stem from Harvest Berries again to stick up from under the focal point. And I did my best to tie a bow with Hawaiian Shores ribbon, but that is definitely NOT my strong suit! LOL!


Some inking, some stitching, and some foam adhesive for a little bit "pop", plus the 3 little gemstones colored with Copics to match, and voila!


Thanks for looking!
