AVS203 Beautiful You...

This is the third card for the Anni-VERVE-sary sketch challenges. I meant to put stitching on it......but then forgot....whoops!!!

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with some soft aqua bazzill, attaching some ivory satin ribbon across the bottom and making a bow with my Bow Easy. The next layer is some more Very Vanilla with one end punched with the Fiskars 'Lace' border punch and topped with this gorgeous French Flea Market DSP by My Mind's Eye. The main panel is the flip side of that same paper matted with more aqua bazzill. In the bottom corner I've stamped 'Beautiful You' (from the Verve set with the same name) and around the flower, the flourishes from Fairy Tales (also Verve) all in Close to Cocoa ink. Finally I added this gorgeous Prima Flower that I've had hoarded in my stash for a while. I am seriously trying NOT to hoard stuff, but it's a hard habit to break!!! :)

Stamps - Beautiful You, Fairy Tales (Verve)

Paper - Very Vanilla, soft aqua bazzill, French Flea Market DSP (MME)

Ink - Close to Cocoa

Accessories - Prima Flower, Ivory Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Fiskars 'Lace' border punch.
