Growing by dreams

It is raining like crazy here! It wouldn't be a big deal, but my car is broken and we are having to walk to the bus stop. We usually do, but if it is raining, we would drive. I can't complain tho, amazing as it may sound, each time we have had to walk out to the bus (twice) the rain has eased up a bit til the kids get on the bus. It really makes me feel like we are being watched over. Rain isn't a big deal, but is comforting.
As you may remember, I made my own background paper for last Friday's challenge. I made a full sheet and have been looking at the left overs for a few days now, wondering what I wanted to do with them. I ended up cutting it into smaller pieces and using it on different projects. This one uses a set I wasn't overly fond of at first. I wasn't sure what "we grow great by dreams" was trying to say. It doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, if you know what I mean. The more I looked at it and thought about it, the more I really started to like it. I am a big believer in goals and really, aren't goals dreams? I think they are. So, my take on this is to set your goals, work towards them, and then you will be great.
My card base is actually purely pomegranate even tho the roses were stamped with riding hood red and regal rose. It actually looks fine together. The DSP is celery. I stamped the focal point with stazon black twice and cut out the "dreams" with the flower from one and layered it on the other with dimensionals. I added a bit of white gel pen around the floral piece just to give it a bit of a border.
Have a wonderful day! I am off to prep for my stamp a stack and scrap night which is tomorrow. If you are in the area, come on over! :o)
