Beauty in All Things

Here is the second card I made from sketch #33 from: http://freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com/2012/05/freshly-made-sketches-33-sketch-from.html
My inspiration not only came from the sketch but also from the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2012/05/tuesday-trigger-vintage-vogue.html

Cath is the best at finding such beauties as this picture each week for us to use as inspiration for our projects.

As you can see from the sketch I rotated my card as well as the sketch for this card just as I did for my first card which you can see if you scroll down to the next post. I used the colors from the dresses kraft, gold and white.
The stamp is from Unity Company and I stamped it using WaterMark ink and embossed it with gold embossing powder and same with the Thanks sentiment in the upper right corner. The touch of gold really adds elegance to the kraft paper. The white striped embossed paper is from DCWV the rest of the white cardstock I embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folders. I wrapped the tulle around the bottom strip of paper and tied another piece in a knot and put a stick pin through. I took some wire cutters and trimmed off the end of the pin so it's not sharp.
Happy Friday to you all!
