A World of Dreams Birthday

I'm not really sure why I got this "World of Dreams" set. I think it may have been to replace one of the retired silhouette sets.  I did find this card on Pinterest.  I did a search for "World of Dreams" cards to see if I could find one that would inspire me or one I would want to copy.

I found this one but had to change it a bit.  I didn't have the dictionary wording background stamp that was used in the original card. I used the "En Francais" stamp set instead.  I don't have any plans on buying the dictionary one so I will be making due with what I have.  You are great stampers and you can give it a try with your dictionary stamp or something else that you have that will work just as well!!!  Even a fun textured background stamp would work.  

I colored the leaves on the image using Garden Green and the flower tips were colored in using the Blackberry Bliss marker. Normally I would have just stamped the whole image using the green and then taken a blender pen and removed the green on the flower parts but I just did markers for both colors.  It worked, I got the same result either way I went.

The words are from the "Wetlands" set and I stamped them using the Blackberry Bliss ink pad.

The base of my card is Whisper White and the layer is Blackberry Bliss.

The circle size is 2-3/4".  I die cut the circle on a piece of scrap card stock that measured 4" x 5-1/4".  The same size as the white piece you see on the card.  I stuck the pieces together using removable tape and then I stamped the background word stamp on.  I put that stencil in the "En Francais" stamp case in the event I may want to use it again some other time.

It was a fun card to make.  Quick and easy too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
