Live Your Dream

Good Morning Bloggers! The beginning of another new week! My, but the summer seems to be going very fast! That's not good for me. I will soon have to start thinking about the starting of the school year and that means a reduced amount of stamping time. But, as for today... I get to play with my good friend, Emily! And for that I am really excited! Hopefully I will be productive and get some great cards done to be able to post!

Today's card layout is one that I got from Becky's card class. I also used her stamps for this one. The stamps are from Live Your Dream. You can find it in the Occasions mini catalog which is still good through this month. I just love this set! I didn't get it but it is really beautiful. The card is pretty simple. The ribbon might give you a head cramp (like it did mine until Becky explained it to me). So, let me try to explain it to you. Glue down the middle panel. Then take a piece of ribbon and tape it behind the left panel and glue the panel down leaving the ribbon hanging out. Then take another piece of ribbon and tape it to the right panel and glue that panel down. Then take both pieces of ribbon that are hanging out and tie them together on the left hand side! There! Try it out and let me know if it doesn't make sense. Of course, the scallop flower is popped up. I did pierce some holes at the bottom to the word 'thanks'. One other thing: I think that I would have stamped off with the bouquet of flowers to make them lighter (bottom right hand corner). Enjoy!!
