Chase Your Dreams - You Just Might Catch One...

What a great thought!

Love this sentiment and the Butterfly Bubbles image from 

which I used for my Design Team 
Inspiration Card
a step card
for Challenge #68

The base of the card was distressed with ink using a make up sponge.

I used some white card stock and 
Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Paints
 to color my background.
Added a strip of 1/8" scor tape and turquoise glitter.

I colored the image with colored pencils, 
added glitter around the punch, and 
liquid pearls was painted over the
 butterfly and 
around the edges of the image.

I added some clear glitter to the "bubbles"

The sentiments were fancy cut and
 mounted to gray card stock and 
attached to the card with foam tape.  

I added some extra bling and a few dots of liquid pearls to finish off the card
