CAS, Handmade Cards, Hello Bluebird DT

Life is but a Dream

Today I’m sharing a card featuring the new Life is but a Dream stamp set from Hello Bluebird.

I created a scene using the previously released Pond Builder die set.

To achieve my preferred CAS style, I left the sky area of my scene free of colour. This also gives a nice space for a sentiment.
