Elegant Thoughts of You



This card was made for a packet of cards for someone. I wanted to make an elegant card w/ some of the designer paper I have. I found this stack called Old World Stack by Die Cut W/ A View, and I just love the swirly designs! I based my card on the color and swirls. The watermarked (actually stamped off) leaf is from Paper Salon. The sentiment is from 3 step Hearts and Roses from Kitchen Sink Stamps. I stamped it in Memento Black and then stamped it again in Sahara Sand just off kilter a little so it looks like a shadow. Obviously, you can't see that in this picture, but that's what it looks like in real life! Once I put the rectangle on the card, the rest of it just fell into place. I knew that I wanted to use pearls, because I wanted to keep that soft, elegant look. I only wish I had pearls encased in gold! I have seen those on cards, and they are just beauiful! The big pearls are from Martha Stewart, and the smaller ones on my chipboard swirl are from Kaiser Scrapbooks. I bought these from eclecticPaperie. The swirl is from Kelly Panacci Holiday Collection of chipboard. The ribbon is Vanilla taffeta from Stampin' Up.

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!

Happy Stamping!!!
