Shy Beauty

Welcome!  It's time for another challenge from the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.  This week it is a fan favorite: Anything Goes!  We have 3 fabulous sponsors:


I was given this gorgeous image from The East Wind: Aurora Daisy.  Isn't she stunning!!??  The image actually has a black line frame around it, but I trimmed it off (mostly by accident).  She is so sultr , I just had to go all girly with this card.  A lot of distressed layers and even some layered die cuts.
The bit of lace is a piece I "rescued" from one of the shirts my daughters had outgrown.  I always pass the good clothes along to a cousin, but make sure to remove anything that can be reused from the clothes that need to be thrown away.  I've gotten lots of buttons and some lace, even some zippers (which are perfect for zipper flowers), from doing this. The word paper is from an Encyclopdia set that my parents were throwing away.  I took one of the volumes just for this purpose.  It's pretty old, so it has that nice "vintage" look to the paper.  I altered my Fleur De Lis Squares die, but cutting out two, layering them and trimming off any overlapping oramentation to create a rectangle from a square die.  You can barely tell where they overlap.

Fabulous card! I really love the papers and what a great idea to grab stuff off of the throw away clothes. I hadn't thought of that before. Thanks for the tip! Hugs, Robin
