VLV Beautiful You

I am recapping the second sketch for May over on the Viva la Verve Blog!  I hope you've found time to play along with the Viva la Verve Challenges!  We always love to see what you create!!  Maureen had a wonderful sketch out of which I created a shaker card!!  I don't know about you, but I LOVE shaker cards and don't make them enough!

I used the new Beautiful Things set along with the coordinating Beautiful Flowers Die Set.  The papers are from the Sunny Days Ahead Collection from Echo Park.  I used the new Copper Blush Sequin Mix for the shaker.

I stamped and embossed the flowers in white onto a light blue cardstock and then sponged the edges with Distress ink in Tumbled Glass.  You was stamped and embossed onto a piece of black cardstock die cut using the Flag It Die Set.  "Beautiful" was die cut out of gold cardstock and adhered across the flowers.  As a finishing touch, I tied some gold and white baker's twine across the card.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!!
