Beautiful People

"The most beautiful people we have known are those that have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.  These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.  Beautiful people do not just happen".

I was inspired by Melissa Phillips beautiful card, which may be seen at http://forum.papertreyink.com/forum/gallery2.php?g2_itemId=175926
Melissa's theme was this layout with different designer paper and a snowflake theme.  I changed the colors, used different designer paper and stamp sets.  Although beautiful, it was too time consuming for mass production of Christmas cards.


Stamp Sets:  Holiday Button Bits (text), Lovely Layers and Silent Night for swirl
Ink:  Black, Ripe Avocado, Pine Feather  and Scarlet Jewell
Card Stock:  Ivory, Simply hartreuse, Holiday Cheer Designer Paper and Holiday Flourishes & Swirls
Accessories:  Lovely Layers Die Collection, Harlequin Cover Plate, Dimensionals
