Beautiful You for Addicted to CAS

Hi Everyone.

Happy Saturday.  It's the fabulous Raga's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge and she has a great theme for us:

I hope you will join us this week.  As usual, the design team have some wonderful inspiration for you, including our guest designer Shawna.  As a computer engineer, her sentiment really resonated with me:-)  I hope you will check out her card!

One of the sets that really screams "style" to me is a Stampin' Up! set called "Beautiful You".  This is another one of those SU sets that will always be with me.  In fact, I think it has been with me since it first came out.  there is something about this set that really speaks to me.

I decided to use paper piecing and background stamping to create my card.  I used the background stamp from the much more recent "Very Versailles" set to create the script background, and some old DSP to do the paper piecing.  Here's my card:

 

Beautiful you (1 of 1)-2

Polka dots.... well they can go either way - casual, or Holly Golightly.... even though she wore that perfect little black dress, I think polka dots are perfect for her :-)

I hope you will play along with us this week and show us YOUR STYLE! 

I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

Hugs

Jaydee

Fantastic card. I love that light script stamping in the background, and this very retro image and your perfect paper piecing. The sentiment is perfect for this creation. I love it!

I love the subtle polka dots on her dress and the soft scripty font on the background! Such an elegant card, Jaydee!
