Follow Your Dreams Card

Hi everyone :-D

Today I have another CAS (clean and simple), one layer, mini card to share with you. It´s this Follow Your Dreams Card
 

This was quick and easy to make card.

I cut out card base from a white cardstock paper. Card dimensions are 69 mm x 101 mm (2 3/4" x 4").  

Then I printed a sentiment on the card base that I wrote on my computer, using beautiful 'A Little Pot' free font from Kevin & Amanda Free Scrapbook Fonts.

I drew a path with a pencil and stamped 4 snails using  a super cute mini snail from  Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy' stamp set

After ink was dry, I outlined the path with black fine permanent pen and erased pencil lines.

Then I colored snails with colored pencils and covered them with transparent varnish to create glossy accents
