Day Dreamer

I tried the neatest technique recently, where you copy off a stained glass window image onto a transparency sheet, then you emboss it. Really looks like the real thing! Laura from  Artfully Musing  has a wonderful tutorial on how to do it if you'd like to check it out, Very Cool!
After it was done it seemed like the perfect backdrop for this little gal sitting comfortably with her book while the hours drift away. The stamps are from Rogue Redhead Designs Relish Reading sheet.
