Are you in shock to see such an elaborate embellishment on my card? lol! There's a wonderful story behind this:
A while ago, I posted a horse card on MASKerade, which started an email conversation between Lura and myself, about where to get the stamp I had used. I couldn't remember - I know it was online somewhere, but when you buy unmounted stamps and throw out the packaging, this is what happens. Long story short, I happily stamped a whole bunch of horsey images and horsey sentiments and mailed them to her.
Imagine my surprise, when a package arrived in MY mailbox yesterday. Inside was this adorable card that Lura had made for me:
Look at the satisfied smile on that cat! Poor mousey!
But wait, there's MORE. Lura had written a letter which explained that she had also made the beautiful dreamcatcher for me to use on a card. It's so amazing that I really wanted it to be the focal point of my card (although I do agree with her that it would go really well on a card with one of my native-looking horse images). I used glue dots to attach the dreamcatcher, and then found the perfect sentiment in Typically Teen by The Craft's Meow and stamped it in black, matting the white layer on turquoise and a black card base.
I plan to save this card for someone VERY special, on a VERY special occasion. Thanks so much Lura!
