hope. dream. fly.

Hello crafty friends! 
Welcome to a new Anything Goes Challenge here at 7Kids
I want to share a card I made with the fabulous Accordian Fancy Labels Die by Elizabeth Craft Designs. You can make cards OR mini albums with this die! Love it!

As you can see, I decided to make a mixed media card! I had so much fun with all the different textures. I started by "coloring" my backgrounds with Ranger Distress inks and water. When everything was nice and dry, I  applied embossing paste and Aged Silver Embossing Powder to my Tim Holtz Harlequin Stencil. I heat set this with my heat gun and got this gorgeous effect!
I didn't do this to the middle panel. Instead, I used the coordinating Fancy Frame Edge Die and cut out these pretty die cuts with silver glittery paper.
The adorable birds are are from a Crafty Individuals stamp set called Four Little Songbirds They were stamped with Black Archival ink.

This is what the card looks like closed:

You can really see the silver glitter die cuts in this photo.
Finally, I added a little fran-tage!
Now I hope I have inspired you to get crafty!
