Beautiful You


I don't think I've used this set but one other time.  It seems I have lots of those sets that are just collecting dust and I hate that...am trying to use more of them.

My sister-in-law, and good friend, Heather's birthday is today...so if she's reading this, Hope you have a Happy Birthday!

This Artful Delight sketch was just a perfect one to use, very clean lines which I love with just a little embellishments. I stamped the flower background on a piece of patterned paper and then the same with the flower, which I fussy cut and sponged to make it stand out a little more.

OHHHH! I love the softness and masculine feel of this card-- you might not have been going for that... but I LOVE it:) I love that you are using up things in your stash-- esp. stamps! I am right there with you! I have got to get rid of my stamps that I don't use! Garage sale coming up soon:) LOL!

FAB card!

I LOVE how you wouldn't had known that was a stamp at all but printed paper!!!!
But the fact that it IS stamping...so so much better! Such a lovely, simple but perfect design! Glad the sketch worked for you and for this!
Thanks for sharing with us!
