Beautiful Dreams with Bobbi!

Hi everyone!  Bobbi here with you today, I have a quick card to share!
 What a great sentiment " Make your life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in your imagination"!  To start with I cut a couple pieces of patterned paper from the Tim Holtz Correspondence Collection, 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 (orange/cream paper) and 4 1/4 x 5 1/4 (blue/cream paper).  I brushed a little white gesso on the cardstock to soften the patterns.  Then dried thoroughly with a heat tool.  If you know me, I just couldn't leave it white!  I added some watered down Pumice Stone Distress Paint to both pattern papers, to grunge them up a little.  Then dried thoroughly with a tool.  That's more like it :)
  I stamped the Yvonne Blair Designs "Beautiful Dreams" phrase stamp with black Archival Ink.  Then I distressed the edges of all the paper pieces with a little Walnut Stain Distress Ink and further distressed with a bone folder.  I punched a small circle out of the Correspondence paper and inserted into the charm with a little Glossy Accents.  I think the new Charmed accents pair nicely with the Mirrored Heart.

 The card base is brown Kraft Core Cardstock.  I layered the pattern papers, attached some linen ribbon and the charm.
  There you have it, a quick and easy distressed card.
Thanks for stopping by!
