Go in the Direction of Your Dreams

The close of the school year is upon some of us (still... sigh).  Yes, in New Jersey, school is in progress.  Graduations are certainly in the air, though.  So in the way of my garden theme, here's a nod to all of those students who are ending their school career to embark on their life-long journey.  I thought this phrase, "Go in the Direction of Your Dreams" from SU's collection of Word Play is just the right amount of font whimsy and heart-felt sentiment under my flower-filled hills.

I know I was inspired by another stamper to use those amazing swirls (sorry, I cannot find the image anywhere, now) - that has got to be my all-time favorite SU stamp!  Baroque Motifs can do just about anything!

And, the beauty inside this card was CASED from a fellow SU demonstrator, Sharon White, who shared the idea of swirling butterflies on Stampin' Up's Stampin Connection.   So, here's a close-up of the inside with butterflies and flowers... and of course... those baroque swirls!

By using a window sheet or transparency, you achieve a glorious effect of butterflies flying on the (clear/transparent spiral) inside of your card.

Hope you found an idea or two.
Have a glorious day!

  1. Love your colors! And I love swirling butterflies, too. And, Baroque Motifs is also one of my favorite sets. You're making me need to get those butterfly dies...
