Dreams have Wings
by Sue Smyth
As you know I love making little off the page things, and this was
inspired by something I saw on the web.
I knew with Couture Creations dies at the ready I would
be able to do my own version of this
heart token/mobile with wings.
The nicely embossed Secret Treasure Keys to my heart key die
was cut out of light weight chipboard and embossed with gold
emboss powder, for a
luscious gold look try double embossing.
Secret Treasures Feather die is cut from white cardstock
and liberally coated with Pearl paint
and Couture Creations Glitz n Glamour Crystallina
Add a few beads and tassels to finish.
