Make It Monday #24: Dry Brushing

Hello,
Back again today to share my Make it Monday Card!! This weeks technique is Dry Brushing and since I love paints of any kind I had to put something together. Today I created a little postcard for a little baby girl using the Postmarks set and the Button Card die. I find that this little Button Card Die is the perfect size to create the look of a little postcard. I used Versamark Dazzle to stamp the little flower on the background. I like the look, but if I were doing this card again I would probably just leave the background clean, so that the focus could be on the postcard. Sweet Blush has been the last color I am slowly adding to my collection of PTI colors. I though I would never use pink, but I love it so much (the ribbon is my favorite)!

Today I am leaving you with a quote I love .... "All dreams come true ...if you have the courage to pursue them."

I have been thinking a lot about my dreams and my hopes. It seems like the older my kids get the more precious life seems to be and I am realizing how fast if goes by. There are so many things I would love to do in life and sometimes I stop myself from even trying. I know that God has a plan and a place for me, but I am kind of scared to find out what it might be.

Thanks for stopping in,
Hollie

I love your card, especially the color combination. The postcard is sweet and makes a lovely focal point. My kids are growing fast too and I need to find a new direction. I understand how you feel.
