Go confidently in the direction of your dreams
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined." This quote is by H. D. Thoreau and this sentiment stamp is one of my favorite sentiments stamps I own. I love the swirl of the words and how it causes one's imagination to soar, much the same as Thoreau wrote.
It has been a while since I've participated in one of Julee's Mojo Monday challenges but this week's layout was perfect for this sentiment and I just had to make up this card using Julee's wonderful layout shown below.
I used gold metalic cardstock partnered with some lovely Wild Asparagus swirl paper. The butterfly is punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The flower is a huge silk flower that I took apart for the petals. The pearl brad is from the Bride's Wedding collection. I embossed the center gold paper with my cuttlebug swirl embossing folder.
I think this card can be used not only for an inspirational card but also for a graduation or even to a newly married couple. What do you think?
