I used this fabulous sentiment from Sparkly Dreams for my card as I just love it.  Such a wonderful reminder to keep dreaming big and pressing on to reach your dreams, especially when the going gets tough and the dream has to shelved for a bit or takes a bit of a detour.

The paper is from Pebbles and I used the Sprightly Springs die set for my garnish under the Spring Fling seam binding bow.  Lots of butterflies fluttering around as they remind me of the caterpillar's dream of being able to fly coming true :)  And a darn dimensional back snuck in under my punched border and I missed it when taking the photo!  Just keeping it real {grin}.

Hello Marisa, I love the fresh summery look to your card. Like that pretty flower paper too. Your border reminds me of the white lace I always added to the bottom flounce of my daughter's summer skirts that I made her when she was little. Thankyou for fluttering by #33. Hugs Mrs A.
