I created this card for the Curtain Call challenge, where the inspiration was a quilt.
I cut 1-1/4 squares (using a Creative Memories square paper punch) from the Miss Caroline Dolled Up Designer Cardstock Paper Pack. Using one paper pack for all of them assured me the pieces would go together. After placing them by 3's, I placed the DREAM sticker across the page and added half a doily above it that included tiny roses (stickers) in the center. Finally, I added some cotton lace on the card.
This card was a little out of my comfort zone (again) but I kept working with it until it had the sort of old-time feeling I was going for. My grandmother used to quilt, along with several aunts of mine. I've kept a couple of their quilts in my home, and they fill me with positive memories of good times with my family.
Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your visits and your comments very much, as they keep me moving forward on this creative journey.
