Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

I had to create a pretty card on this not so pretty day.... rain, rain and more rain on the way! Yuck!

I used the French Flea Market paper by Photoplay... it is just so gorgeous!

I fussy cut the flowers as well as the stamped sentiment.  I die cut the envelopes using the Wplus9 Love Notes die.  The 'beautiful' is a Concord & 9th die.  Of course I had to add a bit of stitching :)

I was inspired by the Tuesday Morning Sketch... although I flipped it the other way:
