Always Dare to Dream
I have to be honest with you…when I opened my design team package and saw the Daphne papers, I was just thrilled….they are soft, shabby and truly lovely. I couldn’t wait to get busy with them. Then I saw the amazing ornate gateway dies…and I swooned! And then I saw the detailed stamps….and I got nervous! The images are gorgeous, but my coloring skills are not that refined and I was afraid I would not do them justice.

The full list of materials used and directions for making this card can be found on the Heartfelt Creations Blog. You will also find a glorious array of beautiful creations from the other members of the Design Team, so be sure to pop over there this morning for a dose of inspiration and beauty. And, while you are there, if you leave a comment, you will be entered into a giveaway for the entire Gateway to the Seasons collection! Isn’t that nice!
That’s it for me today, folks! I hope you enjoyed the Gateway to the Seasons Reveal. I have to tell you, I have really enjoyed working with the Gateway to the Seasons collection.
