Dream But Remember

  There are a lot of you, who like me, hate to use your beautiful designer papers, especially if they are double sided.  The Lost and Found pad by My Mind's Eye torments me.  So I took the plunge and used several sheets.  Yes,(gasp) using adhesive on one of the fabulous sides.  When I started this card, my plan was to use all paper, no stamping.  But I love the sentiment in the Ippity set Now and Always so I did end up stamping that. It is important to dream but not to the point of not living in the present and paying attention to what is important and memorable right now.

  I tried to keep the newsprint theme of the papers.  Should I let you in on a booboo?  I glued the black paper ribbon on the wrong side!  But it turned out okay anyway. I am glad I decided to use paper instead of ribbon.

Here is the sketch I used:

Hope you like my card.  I am trying out for a DT position so would love to know what you think.  And I would love to hear about your paper phobias. LOL
