Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful...

Happy Monday, all! Today I'm sharing a shabby-chic little number with a sentiment that could be appropriate for any occasion when you want to send a little pick-me-up message. :)

I always find it a bit difficult to photograph cards using the colors used here...a very pale taupe - not white or cream, just very muted - with a dusty grey-green, and a dusty pink.  And I always wonder how it looks on different monitors...LOL  So here it is...

Inside the white clay frame I added a piece from another patterned paper with basically the same colors, and put a cluster of pearls in the corner...

The flower cluster is also made up of dusty, grey, green...with just a couple brighter pink roses for fun...

The sentiment is stamped onto a small piece of the mauve patterned paper, treated with a punched edge...

Patterned papers:   Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics
Die:   My Favorite Things Royal Leaves            Frame:   Martha Stewart mold & air dry clay
Flowers & stamens:   Wild Orchid Crafts            Pearls:   Recollections
Twine:   The Twinery/Natural Solid            Punch:   Martha Stewart Beaded Ruffle
Sentiment stamp:   Unity Stamp Co. / Imperfection is Beauty
Miscellaneous:   Wilton doily, ribbon

Thanks for stopping by today...I hope your week is starting with a smile!
