"so beautiful" tall card by lauren bergold

for some reason, i rarely make "tall" cards! i'm not sure why, because i almost always love how they come out, plus--from a practical standpoint--#10 envelopes are inexpensive to buy and mail; so i really think i should make a lot more long, lean cards... such as this one based around embellishments from february's kit, YOU MAKE LIFE FUN!

obviously i was inspired by the vintage fabulousness of october afternoon's "thrift shop" stickers. you get an entire 12x12" sheet in the kit, full of elements which are the perfect size for both layouts and cards! i layered the lovely fashionable ladies (who are popped up on a bit of foam tape for more dimension) over the pretty yellow doily, and used a couple of the typewriter key letters (part of the word "memories") and the word "beautiful" snipped from a scrap of the word search pattern on the reverse of pink paislee's "beauty parlor" sheet. the ivory text layer is actually part of the packaging to prima's flocked rub-ons, source of the sweet butterfly image, as well. the yellow flourish paper is called, appropriately enough, "sunshine" and is by echo park.

there are few things in life that don't look even better when tied up with a bow, in my opinion; this one is made from our luscious pixie signature seam binding, and i think it looks... well... "so beautiful"! ♥
