Time for another Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge!
I decided to find a way to use something to inspire a Valentine card, and so Cinderella lyrics won. Here’s the whole song:
A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you’re fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep
Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smilling through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true
I just love that little song – and in fact another bit of it is going to definitely show up on a canvas in my current on-line class! I’m inspired to do more with story quotes and fairy tales too.
This week I also happened to have my camera handy, so I took photos of my process along the way! It all started with embossing the letters, then just building color until I was satisfied. Such fun! Here’s the process in photos (more or less):
That ‘crumple paper’ step? Yeah… I actually almost trashed this!! Then I went no wait! I do like it. It just needed to be distressed a bit more and embellished a bit.

LOVE it May!! Beautiful bright colour and such depth too!
Great pop of colour May and I always love to see stitching in art. Great subtle heart in the background too. Tracy x x
May, your little card is so pretty! I love that song and you’ve done such a great job of capturing the words to fit the project. Love your bright pink background with the Gelato heart in the center. I also love the polka dots in the background. Very pretty! <3 Candy
Sweet design! Love the faint heart outline over your beautiful background. The words are iconic and perfect on your card!
So cool… love the embossed lettering, and the funky black and pink combo!
