…if she feels good in her skin

Sharing a simple card using the Calen layered die from Birch Press Designs.

I’m right down to the wire for the Color Throwdown challenge but their palette was just perfect for my layered die.  I used three of the colours on the die and added in the last, blue, in my sentiment and the smaller inner die cut and gem. 

The layout is from the sketch over at The Paper Players.  I resized the elements a bit to fit my die and chippie sentiment.  I glittered up the sentiment to match the glittered top layer of the die cut and to match the sentiment itself.

And sentiments are just what they are looking for at Bastel-traum.  Mine is nice and big and a real feature of this card so I am also linking it up in their challenge.
