A Thing of Beauty...

"A thing of beauty is a joy for ever..."
                                         -- Keats


I am now shifting my focus to "things" of beauty that 
give me joy and hopefully will give you joy, too!
I made these cards in an inspired moment using the girl and the
French frame images from the Graphics Fairy. The birds are 3-D stickers from K & Company.  
The background paper and ruffled trim are from Stampin' Up.

This pinkish salmon color is one of my favorites--vintage, warm, and lovely...


 Trying out a different color...
 


Both are shaker cards that have a 3-D frame with clear glass and pink heart glitter inside.  
When turned upside down, little hearts fill the background, like this


Aaaahhh....  
I love beautiful things.  
Don't you?
