Beauty in the World

This is a rather large card measuring 6 1/4" square. I was inspired by the frame from an 8" x 8" Butcher Block Sky & Sage paper pad. The circle "wonderful world" and clock image are also from the pad. The actual card opening is just the violet and clock layer on the tag. Hey, sometimes you want to send a note but don't have a lot to say! The violet base was stamped with Baroque Background and dusted with perfect pearls in gold and pearl. The edges of all kraft cardstock were sponged with Tim Holtz Distress ink/weathered wood and the french blue layer using TH dusty concord. I stamped the French Letter in concord and also the Petite Words sentiment which was embossed using detail clear embossing powder.
All images, are available from
Rubbernecker Stamp co. in the Stamp Oasis section. The Butcher Block paper pad, perfect pearls and distress inks are also available from Rubbernecker. Be sure to stop by and browse soon!
