Elegant Congratulations

Sunday, October 21, 2012


I have a workshop next weekend and the request was for an elegant card that featured shimmer paint.  Here the shimmer paint has been applied to the background using some kitchen cling wrap.  I've also added some stamped imagery from the French Foliage set to the background for some added interest.  The main panel features a pretty butterfly from the Papillon Potpouri set layered over a die cut Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  With the special ribbon offer from Stampin' Up! available at the moment I thought I would showcase the Midnight Muse Satin Stitched ribbon from this promotion.  The finishing touch was the little library clip - I love these embellishments.


Layout inspired by the current Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge.
