Follow Your Dreams Clipboard

For this project I have taken one of the SU On Board Clipboards and covered it with K&Co. paper. I added a striped coordinate piece at the bottom and then used the SU Top Note Die on the upper part. After sanding all the edges, I distressed and antiqued them with TH Vintage Photo ink. I used Scalloped Circle Nestabilities and the SU Starstruck stamp for the round medallion over the K&Co. ribbon and the Long Rectangle Nesties for the bottom sentiment about following your dreams. The stamps are SU Always and Live Your Dream. I also used the new Fired Brick DISTRESSED Stickles for glitz. I love the Distressed Stickles, even better than the regular ones. It's like glitter, but more toned down. The bird has a little stick on gem for an eye. OK I was finished but I wanted something for the clip itself and I dug around and couldn't find anything. Ribbon was too much, a flower wasn't appropriate and then I came across this little compass. I think it came from the Michael's dollar bin but I'm not sure but it fits the bill exactly with this piece and the sentiment. Enjoy everyone!

Very, very nice, I love how all the colors go together, the compass does finish it off perfect!

What a lovely project. How's that garden doing? We are under a winter storm watch. Lots of blowing and drifting snow. Ugh!
