Always Dreaming

It's Monday and the start of another week.  What better way to start off the week with a little nap time crafting!  While my toddler is napping I happened upon a new blog to me called Moving Along With The Times.  Their challenge this week is Shabby and or Vintage.  Well I love me some Shabby Chic, so I just couldn't resist.  For this card I started out with a pink cardstock base and matted a digital floral sheet from Iralamijashop, an etsy shop, which was distressed using the edge of some paper siccors.  Once it was adhered down I machine stitched around the floral print.  I then stitched the dot print and adhered it to the base.  Using Spellbinders labels nine I die cut the shape and embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder.  The image is from Heartwarming Vintage creative scraps.  I added some seam binding and some lace in coordinating colors.  I made a stick pin and added it behind the bow and adhered some chipboard to the center.  The filigree piece of chipboard was a scrap from another heart.  It fit perfectly on top, so I glittered it up using some Martha Stewart fine glitter.  That does it for my nap time card.  Love the little girl dreaming image.  It's so funny how my little ones seem like they are always dreaming up some way to test me.  Well hope everyone has a wonderful week, and thank you for stopping by.
