Dream Big

My friend Jenny is hosting this week's challenge on the Creating Keepsakes Paper Crafts forum. This is the first online place I found to share my love of paper crafting. It has gone through some tough transitions in the last year, and a lot of people have left the forum, but there are a few of us that still hang out. I have fun with the challenges there because we all know each other and it's very personal.

I didn't post Jenny's sketch here but I really didn't deviate from it at all. I made my little corner thingie with my Nesties. I just cut two squares then put the two "frames" that were left together and cut across at an angle. It was easy - I'm going to have to do that more often. The round embellies are gems and the sentiment is computer generated and printed on DP. I used a monochromatic color scheme this time, which I don't do very often. The Dream Puff image is a RAK from my friend Susan.
This was a fun sketch, and I think I'll be using it again. Jenny, if you're reading this, thanks for a fun challenge and I hope you have an awesome birthday!!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
