And here is the card I made..
This card was not how it started out...it was a work in progress that changed multiple times before becoming this and I have to say that I LOVE the way it turned out! (hope you do too!)
Anyways here is how I made this....I used all my papers from the MME Cut & Paste paper pack. I stamped the sentiment, which is the new Dream Bigger stamp ~that will the freebie offered to the first 100 customers~ in the center of my journal die.
 I then went and embellished around that focal point adding several different things. First I lightly stamped one of the Geo Border stamps up the side of the journal die. Then using one of the Fun Stitched Edges die, I added that onto the side of the journal die. To hold that all onto my card mat, I added some machine stitching to the upper right hand corner of the journal die. 
Next I die cut the arrow from the 4x4 Journal Die + More set and popped it up facing the sentiment. A few randomly placed enamel dots along that side give a bit more dimension and fun to the card.
Finally I used the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Die to cut out a small flower. Before adding it to my card, I stamped all the pieces with another Geo Border to add some more texture to those pieces.
