believe in make believe...

Do you ever think you want to go back in time...to the days that you believed in make believe?  A time when things were magical and carefree?

Ahhhh...to be young again...

Here's a card that is all about make believe:




The Etsy shop of the week is Imagine Studio.  I was inspired by this print:




...with The Craft's Meow Butterfly Kisses that was released on May 1st:


{I've been having fun with shrink plastic!}

Why yes, I did zig zag stitch the doily:)

I was inspired by the latest Twisted Card Sketch...the twist is Shine...

I glitzed up the wings on the sweet butterfly girl...

I hope you'll take the time to play along with the girls at EtsyInspired Challenges!

p.s.  There is some fun going on over on the Flashback Friday Challenge blog...you'll want to check it out...if you're into blog candy {wink}.

recipe:
cardstock:  PTI kraft

  12. Love your card, Amy and this set! You know the one thing about getting "older" is that everyone does, so make believe is only in your heart if you let it be. We you are little, you believe because you are told and taught to. As an adult you can make believe by working hard and making a dream come true! Happy day to you my friend!

  33. Hurray for make believe. cardmaking is a way for me to indulge. Most projects are an attempt to create a little fantasy world for me.

  34. Holy cow. That little silhouette fairy turned out so amazingly well, I haven't stopped looking at her closeup for a few minutes. The sentiment is spectacular, and those papers are beyond ideal for this. Lady, I would marry your stitching abilities if that were an option.
