CR84FN10 - Dreams

 Look at the beautiful soft pastels for  the CR84FN10...

I started with the beautiful Hydrangea from Hero Arts and colored them in the soft lavender using water color pencils and a water brush.  The inside of the card is stamped using the beautiful quote from Flavia using the  Verses Rubber Stamps  Wings of the Dreams - QQ0841-E. The background is stamped using Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mists and spritzed with water on the Hero Arts cling fabric background. The bees are from Impression Obsession.  The crocheted flower was made and sent to me by Alice. (Thanks Alice!).  The doily center was cut out along with the front of the card to showcase the inside with the sentiment. 

Here is the gorgeous inspiration photo for CR84FN10 from Mona:
