Dreamweaver & Quietfire Collaboration

Get ready for an amazing week of Awesome in Autumn!  This week we are playing with the Quietfire Design Team, and are so excited to play with their amazing images and sentiments.  In their beautiful calligraphic style, their quotes and their thoughts are the perfect addition to our Dreamweaver Designs.  Follow along with us, and leave a comment for an opportunity to win one of the two wonderful prize packages!
Here's what I've created for today's post:
I used the new Tole Leaves stencil by Dreamweaver as my background.  I used the pearlescent paste and repeated it three more time.  While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled the paste with the pearl Art Institute glitter.  I cut these tiles down and adhered them to the cream background paper.  I stamped the Live in the Moment stamp by Quietfire onto cream card stock and embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I them cut the sentiment out with the Label one die.  While the die was still over the paper, I sponged the opening with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.  Then I cut out the decorative label out of a pearlescent card stock and adhered it to the center of the card.  Finally I punched out the butterfly to go onto the card and added some pearls.

Check out this week's awesomeness, starting today with...

Heidi, The use of the stencil repeat in the back ground was a coo! Very suttle and so beautiful. I really like the simplicity of the card design and the layering did everything necessary to make it "pop". Thank you for sharing and your inspiration.
