Dream

I am getting messy again with this one after my very clean and simple card last time!  



The main image is from a clear set by Debbi Moore - there are four similar images in the set and I had forgotten how fab they are.  This is the second time I have used one recently.  The 'Dream' sentiment and the danglers are clear stamps by Inky Doodles, the 'Happy Birthday' is a Penny Black wooden stamp and the extra little background stars are Lavinia.  The background is made using Spun Sugar, Weathered Wood and Picked Raspberry Distress Paints -  Iced Spruce and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, water, Glimmer Mist and a Special Touch mask.  I never really use bows but dug out my bow maker and used it for the first time!  Its not the best bow in the world but with the jewel brad added, I quite like it!  
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
'Dream' is the theme at Hel's fab blog and 'Inky Antics' is what That's Crafty are looking for.  If you have the time, please pop over and see the amazing samples and other brilliant entries.  
Thank you so much for visiting me, I appreciate it loads and loads!  Have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing.  Take care.  Christine xx
