Simple Elegance

I love this card.  It was made for the Shabby Tea Room challenge.  Nothing like the last minute to post eh?  Hope I'm not too late.  This stamp is an Inkadinkado clear stamp.  I use these stamps a lot. The set contains a few chandeliers and I love them all.  I used my Spellbinders to make the border and added some bling, embossed the background CS with a SU plate.  I put lots of stickles on to make it pop as the inspiration picture just reminded me of shiny elegance.  It's kind of hard to see but the bg behind the light is silver.   Hope you like.


I'm a last minute entry to the Winged Things challenge on Simon Says Stamp.  I had this piece of inked glossy cardstock that I had practiced on for the card below this one and seeing how I hate to waste paper -- I decided it would be great for another scene.  I used one of the stamps from the Tim Holtz set Spring Sprung and the butterfly is a stamp from the SU set Touch of Nature.  I put some gold dots on the wings of the butterfly but my Zip wanted to run on me.  Should have left well enough alone.  The background of course was made with alcohol inks.  I just love using my inks.  I like it and hope you do too.  Enjoy your day.
