Classy & Elegant?!

One of the current challenges on Moxie Fab World, celebrating Card Style Week, is to make a classy and elegant card. This definitely poses a challenge for me but I thought I'd have a go anyway!



Stamps:- Hero Arts Antique Engravings & Messages


I bought the background paper (Autumn Leaves - Jacobean Black) last year because I thought it was gorgeous and then I didn't know what to do with it! So I'm delighted to be finally using it on this card. In real life the paper is more cream than white but it's yet another rainy, dull day here today so the colour isn't coming out true to life. I embossed the bottom part of the panel in my Cuttlebug with the Fleur De Lis folder. The sentiment and butterfly are embossed in gold and the butterfly is coloured with markers. I always save ribbons off boxes of chocolates and that's where these ones came from!
