Today's technique is simply to stamp the dancing girl image from the Beautiful You stamp set on very vanilla cardstock and the DSP. I used early espresso ink for this. I cut around the dress and hat with my paper snips on the DSP piece. Then you simply glue that piece on to the very vanilla piece to get the colorful dress image.
The Cupcakes and Carousels paper stack is packed with beautiful shabby chic papers in a 6x6 inch format. It is perfect for making quick beautiful card like the thank you card pictured above. The soft palette is soothing to look at and admire. I paired it with the Sale-A-Bration gold metallic ribbon for the right amount of bling.
