Good morning and welcome to day two of sneak peeks!! Today we have some more awesomeness to share with you using three more sets....Geo Borders, Stitched Decorative Banners, & Dream Bigger :) 

For my first card, it might be easier to tell you what I DIDN'T do than tell you what all I DID do!!! bahahaha
I got the bright idea I would try some water coloring (which by the way is not as easy as some people make it look!) So for the background, not sure if you can tell BUT it is water colored using Tim Holtz distress ink in two different shades :) I then stamped the Dream Bigger sentiment in the center. I used the cloud dies from the Fly Away With Me die set and randomly placed them on the card. When I got to this point is when things really started to get shaky and it just about wounded up in the trash can lol! I stamped the birds from the Lost At Sea set and didn't realize my card stock had not fully dried and the birds looked wonky :( Soooo I then "tried" to fix them using a fine tip pen and messed them up EVEN more arrrr!!! I was determined at this point that somehow, someway I was going to fix them!! That is why they are all covered up with stickles :) :) :) Since the birds had stickles, the sky needed stickles, then the clouds needed stickles and if ALL of that was all nice and sparkly the sentiment needed to sparkle.....see where I'm going with this EVERYTHING now sparkles lol!!! Then to top it all off, I went to move it after everything dried and got a tad bit of yellow on one of the clouds! I definitely lost my religion on this card just sayin.....Here's a look at it from the side...



On to my second card! I decided to go WAY simple on this one (I made it after the one above and my stress level was way to high to do anything but simple hee hee) Anyhoo, I used the Dream Bigger sentiment again for my focal point. I then used one of the borders from the Geo Border set and stamped it beneath the sentiment. I used the Medium Stitched Scalloped Bow and also stamped it using the same border stamp. Just for fun, I added a little face from the Bee Happy set to the center!


Here's another look at it from the side....


Thanks for stopping by! I'll see ya back here tomorrow with more sneak peeks :) Hugs, Leanne
