Dream Big

Happy Monday!
Chilly one here this morning.  Had to pull out my big fluffy socks to keep my toes warm :)
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!!

Today we start a new challenge at the Digi Makeover challenge blog!  After a tough one last week with motion cards, we're making it a little easier on you and going with Anything Goes!!  All you have to do is use a digi image and make whatever you would like!!

For my card, I decided to try and use up some scraps.  My pile is getting a little large...so large that I have multiple piles and now folders to hold it all.  I just don't use scraps all that often...maybe I should make that a goal :)
I really love how the multiple colors go together on this card.  The inking around the image is a little brighter than I thought it would be and doesn't quite match as nicely as it should...but I still love the card.

I used an image from the Dandy Wishes set and used my scallop scissors to cut a frame around it.  Then just cut up some matching paper flags and tied a little piece of twine around them.
I also won some awesome goodies from Freckled Fawn that arrived last week and decided to throw some of the new washi tape on there in the background.

The final touch was the stitching around the outside.  The card looked a little bare without it, like it needed a dark edge to contrast all the light colors.

I hope you will join us this week!  Be sure to visit all the makeup artists to see what they have made, since they always have such awesome creations!!  I'm sad that this week is Ardilla's last week with us...she will be greatly missed.  But I'm also excited to welcome AJ to our team!!  So go check them all out!!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    Crafting with Dragonflies #11-Use Your Scraps
