Nurture your dreams

Nurture every dream as if it were a precious flower... (Michelle Perkett)
 Almost two weeks ago I was the winner of a blog candy, Lee so generously was giving two digi stamps from Michelle Perkett etsy store, I chose Just Breathe Mermaid and Rosie. So this is the card I made with Rosie.
It´s a square card, I´m not very use to make them so I´m not completely happy on how I used the space in this card.
I made this card to participate on Challenge #17 at Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge Blog. This week is a color combo... a very challenging color combo for me
The fushia color I had is a bit more on the red side, but I liked the patterned paper so much that I decided to use it anyway. I colored the image with colored pencils and I pierced the stems of the flowers with a needle.
I also pierced the patterned paper and faux stitched it with a black gel pen. I cut a sheet of an old book and paint it with light pink acrilic paints and cut following an old template I have and I faux stitched also but on the outside of the paper.
I cut out the sentiment from the digi stamp and glued the words separately. I used two rhinestones on the corners of the pink paper, and added two flowers I stamped with clear stamps on the pink paper. I cut the flowers, crumpled them and stitched some glass beads on the centers. The border of the card is also pierced.

My friend Marilyn shared with me her mom´s recipe to make Oatmeals Rolls. I´m preparing them right now. My idea is to have them ready to eat for breakfast tomorrow. Lets see how they turn out! I´ll post a picture of them tomorrow. Thanks so much for sharing Marilyn!!!

Hi Ileana! So glad to see you using one of Michelle's images you won on my blog! She turned out absolutely gorgeous!!! I love your use of the white space on this card! I know I tend to want to fill in every square inch, but your eye is drawn to the image with less on the card. I love your coloring too! Now I may have to buy another one of Michelle's images after seeing this!
