Australiana - Follow Your Dreams

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by - I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  We are enjoying Spring and with it comes daylight savings tonight - we lose an hours sleep - arghhh - well, being honest - it is an hour I lose in The Studio - but rest assured I will be making that up somewhere along the way!! Wink:wink!

The card I am sharing today could not be easier to create - I have used patterned paper from Kaisercraft Misty Mountains - Sunset (6'x6") which already has most of the colours on it - and don't you love those gorgeous autumnal tones?! The purple reminds me of our beautiful plum tree in autumn - it was glorious! I have highlighted the existing colours by sponging with Imagine co-ordinating inks and Sponge Daubers.

The die has been cut using black card stock and glued to the card front and then popped up into a slightly larger pre-cut  purple card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The sentiment is from the Kaisercraft Sticker Book - BelleThis has adhered onto slightly larger card stock and glued to the card front as shown in the photo above.
