Dare to Dream

I finally got around to working with the new Spring Kit from Whiff of Joy featuring Elisabeth Bell stamps and I used Dare to Dream on this card. I saw a card in a magazine that displayed a picture frame using an embossed metal sheet with a monogram. I thought that would be a perfect idea for a card and that's how I came up with this one. The DT Call challenge was to make these fun flowers.

Did you know? Leave It to Beaver was a 1950s and 1960s family-oriented American television situation comedy about an inquisitive but often naïve boy named Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver (portrayed by Jerry Mathers) and his adventures at home, in school, and around his suburban neighborhood. The show also starred Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont as Beaver's parents, June and Ward Cleaver, and Tony Dow as Beaver's brother Wally. The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-twentieth century.
