Follow Your Dreams

Happy Friday, folks!  Are you ready for a fun, relaxing weekend?  I know I am!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

I created this card for the latest challenge on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog - Graduation.  Isn't that sentiment perfect for a young girl graduating from high school or college?  I've used the following products from Classy Cards 'n Such on this card:

Celebrate stamp set (Stampavie)
Lace Light Deco Border (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Fanciful Flourish (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Stacker Flower #1 Leaf (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Sweet Williams (Cheery Lynn Designs)

For the flower, I cut out the Sweet Williams twice, sponged the tips of the petals with rose ink, and then pinched each petal in half.  I staggered the petals when I stacked them and I used a gold brad in the center to hold it all together.  I love the fullness and texture and depth of this flower!

If you'd like to go shopping, you can save 10% by using this code Holly-10 when you check out at Classy Cards 'n Such.  I buy all my Cheery Lynn Designs dies there as well as all the latest Stampavie stamps.  :-)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
