Dare to Believe!

Today's card is one of my favorites of the ones I made with the recent special release sets from The {stamps} of Life.  I wish you could see it IRL so you could see the beautiful shimmer that it has!

For the vertical panel, I used a subtle text-printed designer paper from Basic Grey's Manilla 6 x 6 pad, stamped it (stamped off first) with an image from swirls2Build, then sponged the edges with ink and misted it lightly with gold Shimmers spray.  The labels 4 sentiment panel was stamped on card stock in the same manner, repeating the misting to achieve a more intense golden hue to draw the eye.  The flowers are from thanks2You, cut and embossed with an oval nestabilities, sponged, misted with Shimmers and studded with luminous pearls. I used the bow easy to fashion a multi-looped bow of sheer metallic gold ribbon.

The back of the card is stamped with a signature from stamped4You.  I love that these signature stamps coordinate so well with the images from other sets...such a nice finish for a hand-made card!
