CAS-ual Fridays New Release Picks Day 2 - Dream Then Do

Are you excited about the newest release at CAS-ual Fridays?  We've got lots of beautiful things to share this week - 5 New stamp sets and some new dies too.   This is day 2 and we're showing the new "Dream Then Do" stamp set.   It's filled with positive inspirational sentiments in pretty mixed fonts.  Michele is sharing projects from all the design team members and offering a $15 gift certificate all 5 days - so make sure you stop by her blog to enter to win!
I made two cards today using similar techniques.  I wanted the beautiful sentiment stamp to do all the talking.  I color blocked the bold font words, and then made a color blocked background in the same colors, and laid out in the same order as the blocked words.  

To add a little eye candy I added some shiny buttons threaded with gold shimmer twine. 
For my second card I stamped a colorful background of the "Dream then Do" Sentiment.  and then made a color block background for the pennant with the "Never Give Up" Sentiment.
Again I added a button and some twine.  I used very similar elements  on both cards to show how you can achieve very different looks.  These sets are really versatile - whether you use just the sentiment as the focal point or create backgrounds
Ready to see more projects created with this set?  Here's a list of designers with projects to share today!
