I've been neglecting the Beautiful You set lately as there have been some lovely new sets to play with but today I thought it deserved an outing with a twist - including the new Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.

I used the papers as a background but also cut it out for her dress. I have layered her onto Old Olive and added a dotted background with a white pen to simulate a window or as if she is looking in a mirror.

 I added some butterflies - one with the sadly now retired Bitty Bitty punch but the other larger butterfly ws cut out with Winged Blossoms framelits.  I added some Enamel dots to the butterflies, a bit of sponging on the smaller one.  There is Wink of Stella on the butterflies, on her hat and on the dress.  The hat was coloured in with a touch of Watermelon Wonder using a blender en.

The sentiment from the same set was embossed with white embossing powder and a touch of Lace Ribbon finishes off the card.

I know a very stylish lady who is going to receive this for her birthday.

I'm entering this card into :

The Paper Players -             theme Birthday 
Inkspirational -                    theme Windows
Hand Stamped Sentiments - Sketch - Butterfly
