Dare To Dream...

Hi everyone, today I have a very special card.  I made this card for Maria's birthday which is around the corner, again!!!  I got the Rapunzel image from a coloring page website, I took the image into Photoshop and sized it so it would fit the largest die from Spellbinders "Labels Seventeen", I printed it on 90lb. watercolor paper and colored with Distress re-inkers.  I originally was going to stamp "Happy Birthday" but I found this sentiment in one of my stamp sets and I just had to use it with this image.  
Used some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, the little rose buds were just white and I painted them with violet Inka-Gold paint so they have a very pretty shimmer.  I used an antique bronze filigree flower and heat embossed it with lilac frost embossing powder, and placed it under the large pink rose, it made a perfect little doily.
The crown I colored with some gold paint, this is the first time I used this brand of watercolor paper and I have to say I loved the quality of it.
Here my inspiration for my layout, isn't this a great sketch.
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a fantastic weekend, I'll be spending some quality time with my DH and DD.  Until next time.
