Chase Those Dreams

Hi, Friends.....

I made a couple of super-simple CAS cards with some gorgeous Dollar Store metallic silver mirror stickers that I've had in my stash for several years....and I haven't used them all yet!! Fortunately, they still stick well. 

It was a trick getting these photographed and my shots do not do justice to the super-shiny foil of these amazing images. I have these in mind as girl graduation cards, but they could be for other occasions....or no particular occasion. :)

I used a Unity stamp for the inside sentiments.....that I think is esp appropriate for graduation or some other launching type of occasion. "Don't follow your dreams....CHASE THEM."

Supplies used include:
Dollar store silver foil stickers
Unity "Don't follow your dreams, chase them" from Wish with Your Heart (KOTM August 2014)
Versafine ink in Onyx Black
White cardstock

Hope you enjoyed my cards today. Thank you so much for your kind comments!
