A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes

I used Cake Topper Kiss digital stamp from The Greeting Farm to create this wedding/anniversary card. The sentiment I used is a freebie I grabbed a while ago from Tattered Angels. I thought it was a perfectly matched to this image. I started off the base of my card by embossing a piece of white cardstock using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots). I then distressed the edges of it using a pastel pink chalk ink pad. I backed it in kraft cardstock and then again in dark brown cardstock. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I then repeated what I did on the background (with the exception of the embossing) to the image and the sentiment. I added a piece of green ribbon behind the image across the base of the card. I added this fabric flower to the middle of the card where the image and sentiment meet. The flower is actually a stemmed flower that I purchased at AC Moore a while ago. I removed the stem and all the plastic pieces so that the flower would lay flat on the card. In order to keep the flower from falling apart I added glue dots to each layer as I pieced it back together. To finish off the flower I added a pink sprinkle (from Annabelle Stamps) to the center. I also added 6mm white heart pearls (from Annabelle Stamps) to the upper corner of the card and image and to the bottom corner of the sentiment.
