Remarkable Dreams.....

I've been asked to make a few 'special' cards lately, large A5 cards for my workplace to sign for those who are leaving at the end of the year.  I've made this one for a lovely young lady who has chosen not to return next year, as she wants to pursue her wish to teach kindy.
Now despite her being my son's teacher, I really don't know her all that well, so it took me a little while to 'find' the card.  Sometimes I know exactly what I am going to do....not this time!!  But once I settled on a  colour scheme and my embellishments, it all came together fairly easily. 
Of course, I did take inspiration from Addicted to CAS and Can You Case It?

I've created dimension with lots of layers.  Leaves stamped, leaves die cut and glued straight down, then glue dots, and then dimensionals.  Add in the Blossom Accent embellishments, and there's the top layer!   I deviated from the sketch just a little, by moving the sentiment to lower on the card front.
Colours: Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Tip Top Taupe, Hello Honey, Delightful Dijon, Whisper White.
Stamps: World of Dreams, Remarkable You
Other: Rhinestones, Blossom Accents.
Happy Stamping.....Manda xx
