LLLC - A Dream is a Wish...

Good Morning, all! I took a few days for a break, but I'm back today with another La-La Land Crafts  Diecut Wednesday card to share with you.

Our challenge inspiration this week is "Hidden Extra"...and that led to all sorts of ideas spinning in my head. In the end, I decided on a softly-colored shabby chic card in rose and pale taupe, with a hidden extra message...

The "hidden extra" message is on a tag attached to the Lattice Border die cut at the top of the card. I used foam tape to adhere the patterned papers to the front of the card base, allowing lots of room for the hidden sentiment "tag" to slide in behind them...

The inspirational quote on the tag is from LLLC's Beautiful Day Sentiments stamp set...

The deep burgundy roses are surrounded by cherry blossoms made using LLLC's Cherry Blossom Flowers die set - they're sitting on a "bed" of leaves made using LLLC's Berry Flourish  die...

This cute little tag die is from the Stitched Elements die set. I stamped it with a little dotted heart and a tiny little word in the center, pressing a bit harder on the right side of the heart stamp to give the image an "ombre" look...

The front sentiment, again from LLLC's Beautiful Day Sentiments, is stamped onto another die cut shape from LLLC's Stitched Elements set. Down in the corner beneath it, you can see the Filigree Corner Die ...

I love the beautiful lines on the Fancy Butterfly Die. I left it in the taupe cardstock without further coloring, and added some cream colored pearls for just a touch of embellishment...
