Hold on to Your Dreams

I got great mail today. After waiting for ages I opened the mail today to my Autumn Magnolia Stamp Club stamps. Oh they are so lovely. I could hardly wait to use them.

The first thing I had to do was find a challenge that I could use my new stamps. Lucky me. I found the following sketch at http://2sketches4you.blogspot.com/2008_09_01_archive.html .

This is a great spot to go for challenges. They put a new one up each week. Sooooo, guess what I colored with...Prismacolored Pencils. I have asked for the markers for Christmas just for a change. But until then, I love my pencils. I had great fun mixing the colors reds, oranges, greens and browns with the golden hues to color the flowers and the leaves. It is a great stamp set...6 angels and 10 other stamps. Gotta love those Magnolia stamps.

I used all kinds of dimensionals on this card. I tried to show a side view but its not that great. I put the leaves and the log directly on the DP and the rest are on dimensionals. I ordered these from Jody Morrow at http://confessionsofaribbonaddict.blogspot.com/ . Jody often has ribbon and sticky sales. Her dimensions are great. I am getting low so hope she has a sale again soon.

I purchased the DP at Michaels and it does not have a label in the back but I`m guessing Provo Craft or Canson since those are their two big papers. It is beautiful fall paper.

Hope you like this card. Please leave comments. It makes me feels so wonderful to hear from people. Thanks to all who comment.

Talk to you later
Heather
