Beautiful You

Today's card is using one of my favorite stamp sets. (How many favorites can I have?  I don't know - so many are so awesome!)  I'm so very happy this set carried over to the new catalog.

This card includes a little fussy cutting from the Eastern Palace Specialty Paper.  LOVE the look!  Does anyone else coordinate their umbrella with their skirt?  :)
