I dreamed it!

A very odd thing happened on Saturday morning. I dreamed that I made a card, and I remembered it all so clearly when I woke up that I made a rough sketch of it. So imagine my surprise when I logged on to my computer to see that my "dream card" almost perfectly matched the sketch for this week's challenge at Less is More.  And even more surprising, the card was a white on white one - and the new challenge at ATCAS is White on White.


I've used the embossing folder that was a magazine gift a couple of years ago and is now so popular that it is being sold under the name "THE Embossing Folder". I cut away the central band and then used the top and bottom to completely cover my card, leaving a gap between them. The sentiment is cut with a tattered lace die.

I'm very tempted to add a whole plethora of gems, flowers and butterflies to this, but I think anything at all added would stop it from looking clean and simple. It's reminded me, though, how much I love this embossing folder and that I really must use it more often.

I am sharing this with

How spooky was that to dream about the design of the sketch for the LIM challenge, before you knew what to was! Beautiful card, Jane, perfect in white on white. xx

I often fall asleep 'designing' a card Jane but they don't normally turn out as well as I dreamt LOL! Love your card and like you I would want to add more. Do you know they've brought out more designs of THE embossing folder?

Fabulous card, how funny that you dreamed this card! I'm sure I got that embossing folder as a freebie a while back, but I can't find the flippin thing in my chaos!
