Live love Laugh dream - The Ribbon Reel #20

Happy Saturday!  This morning I awoke to just a dusting of snow, beautiful blue skies and sunshine.  I think the day has inspired me.  The snow will be gone by Wednesday with the 50 degree temperatures they are predicting.  This has been one of the craziest winters I have ever experienced here in Chicago, but I am not complaining! :)

This card was created for this week's challenge at The Ribbon Reel.  We were asked to make a card with a New Year's Resolution.  My resolution is to live, love, laugh and dream to the fullest.  I think all of the above are sometimes taken for granted - and we forget about the simple things in life.  So here's to 2012!! :)

DP's, vintage button care and embellishment from OA, paper flower from Prima, cardstock, buttons, twine, scallop diecut and stamps from PTI, decorative pin from Maya Road and misc. seam binding ribbon.

Thanks for taking a peek - off to post my card!  Have a great weekend!!  Cathy xx :)
