Charisma Cards DT entry

I have decided last minute that I would enter the Charisma Cardz Design Team Call . I wasn't going to bother as I know that there is loads of entries already and there are a lot of talented ladies applying but now I'm thinking if I don't try then I will never know, so here's my card I made for them.
To apply you have to make a card with the theme of pink, flowers or dreams, but I couldn't decide which one to do, so I went for pink and flowers then when I had finished the front I thought maybe I could get the dream part in there somewhere too so I decorated the inside to incorporate that into my card.
I got this lovely Anya image today from Susie for my birthday (thanks Susie) and I just couldn't wait to use her.

For the inside I used the same papers and a little ric rac. The swirls were stampd onto scrap card then cut out and stuck on, I did the same on the front.
As I said before, I had to have something about dreams, so I had a look in my stash and found this vellum verse then stuck it onto some pink card with vellum dots so you could see the writing clearly. It's quite small writing so not very clear here but it reads:
Dreaming Loudly
If you shout your dreams loud enough,
The Angels fly down from the heavens above,
And smiling, they breathe them into the night,
Then surely enough, up above they take flight.
So watch for your dreams, listen and feel,
Or you might never know when they become real.

I'm not sure who wrote this as it was just in a pack I bought months ago but I think it's quite nice, don't you?

Stamps: Anya image I got from Susie :), swirls from Inkadinkadoo Gem Stone Jewels set
Papers: Basic Grey 2 scoops (not sure about the other one)
Colouring: Copics and distress inks
Embelishments: Prima flowers, pearls by Mark Richards, Spacers from Holburn Crafts, Ric Rac John Lewis, Velum verse Arty Miss

Well thats it for me just now, hope you are all having a great day.
Hugs Lora
