To a Beautiful You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

A messy background on this one. I started by inking through a small section of the Elegance Border Mask with Faded Jeans Distress Ink randomly over the background piece. Then, with the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Justrite Dotted Fronds Background with Faded Jeans. Finally, again with the stamp in my hand, I stamped the Creative Expressions Butterfly Corner, again with Faded Jeans. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations My Garden Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Faded Jeans.

I stamped the Creative Expressions Bejewelled Bag onto Duck Egg Blue Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I  cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 2 and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Timeless Sentiments Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

I made a couple of flowers using the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Juliet Dies (should be available again at the end of next month) and cut some leaves using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown addien some White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel PVA in Pastel Blue around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
