Hey Lily Bee readers - it's Brenda - and excited to be sharing some Lily Bee projects today featuring the French Couture line. I LOVE the rich colors and patterns in the line - almost fall colors but can be used for so much more. For this card i use 'handmade' for the background and then a die cut frame from French Couture to place the sentiment on. This card is also from French Couture and has a totally different look and feel. I actually used the die cut frames. I wanted smaller patterns so i just cut then centers out of the scalloped frames to create this card and then used the scallops as borders. And last i have a layout i made that incorporates a little bit of both - The paper green paper is from 3 little birds, the striped from French Couture and then a die cut bracket from French Couture. This layout is featured in the may issue of ScrapStreet - an ezine filled with lots of great inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you come back for more. Don't forget about the Mini Album Contest - you still have a few weeks to get your entries in!!
