Beautiful You

I had so much fun making this card! The sketch I used is from Glitterbabe's Challenge Blog:I did my card landscape, but other than that I think I followed it pretty closely. Take a look.

On to the details: none of the papers I used had the brands printed on them (really wish they would do that so I could give them credit), the lace is from a stash my grandmother gave me (chances are good that it is nearly as old as I am. The petals on the sides (they look like hearts) are extras from the inside (which I will show you in a bit). The big flower is a traced image from the inside (again, you have to wait to see it). The blue pearls were on a sheet, maybe Creating Keepsakes? The digital image (blue) is from Stef of Glitterbabe (a freebie on her site). I just happened to have the stamp (embossed) from Autumn leaves which correlated perfectly with Stef's. I typed and printed off the sentiment. Here is an alternate view:

And one more:
Alright, on to the inside! This is the first card I have ever created that I did the inside before the outside. That is because Dawny of Pink Piggy inspired me by making her own pop up flower card and she inserted the tutorial on her site (please visit this link to see how to do it). The flowers that look to be black are really dark blue. This image is part way open:
This image showcases the sentiment, I believe it is from TLC or was it Sentimental Sundays?
And here it is fully popped up! Notice, Stef, the glitter on the center flower (just for you).

Do I have you wanting to make one of your own? I sure hope so :)
