Chase Your Dreams

Hi there!  I had a wonderful time making this took me all day with bits and pieces, but it all came together beautifully!
First off, I used a sketch from MFT - Get Sketchy challenge... At first when I saw this sketch, I didn't know where to go with it and I always like to incorporate MFT stamps into it (which I only have a few).  I finally grabbed my January SSS kit and got to playing!

I started by grabbing MFT wildflower stencil and chalk ink and started building onto the grey wood grain paper in the kit...Fancy Pants "Beloved" collection! I also used the triangle paper in the kit and cut a strip and then cut the triangles to form a sort of banner. I added a thin strip of grey and white stripe washi (from SSS Dec kit) and machine stitched it in.  I stamped the great quote on vellum and used some light pink embossing powder and then stitched that on.  I cut apart one of the Fancy Pants "Beloved" tickets (also in the kit) and used the washi to attach it to the top of the card and added a twine bow. I cut the end piece in half and stitched that onto the side of the card!  Then I used foam tape and adhered the tag to the base. The base is a standard card using the wood grain white paper in the kit! 
I think that about sums it up! I love the direction that this card went and am off to upload it into this months sketch challenge at MFT!
I really do appreciate all comments and feedback...thanks for stopping by!!

****edited to add that I entered this card in the SSS Monday Anything Goes Challenge*****
