I have used this wonderful set, Beautiful You, so many times.  But it seems the sentiments and the ladies seem appropriate for the type of card I happen to need or decide to try.  I hope you have tried playing with this wonderful set. Here is my card for today.


Beautiful you, 143637


This lovely Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack was my color inspiration.  It pretty much said that I was going to use Berry Burst!  The only discrepancy is the watercoloring of the lady.  I used the Rich Razzleberry Watercolor Pencil and a Blender Pen.

The lady and the sentiment are both die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits. In that set of framelits you get squares, circles and ovals.  I just adore using those.  The stitching means I do not have to layer another piece under that die cut.  In this case it would have been difficult due to my color choices.  The set of framelits is most definelty a Must Have for your tool kit of dies.

The finishing touches for this card are the Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding and the Enamel Shapes (I used a Rich Razzleberry shape again to compliment the Berry Burst).  The Crinkled Seam Binding is a dream to work with.  It is extremely light and maneuverable. The bow came out perfect the first time!
