Chasing Dreams ~ MMSC37

Welcome to my blog! I'm so glad you've had a bit of time to stop in and look around. :) This stamped image is from the D'Amour Allure stamp line available at McMahon Five Designs. These stamps are a vintage style which seem very romantic to me.
It's hard to see in these pictures, but the background is textured and then spritz with pirates gold mist to give it some shimmer.
I stamped "Dreams" on this little vellum tag from a SU stamp with the sentiment:

"Dreams come one size to big so you can grow into them"
I stamped the whole sentiment on the inside of this card, but couldn't seem to get a nice picture to show you. :)
Here is the sketch for this week, but if you are feeling like doing the CAS version of this sketch, please be sure to check out the Midnight Madness Blog where you'll find a choice of TWO sketches to work with. :)

Michelle you have created the most ravishingly beauteous woman with her flowing garments of spun gold. The seagulls look like they have taken flight off the page. What an enthralling thought provoking creation!!! Great job with the sketch and your image this week Michelle.

Bear Hugs,
