A Touch of Class

Really liked this image when I saw it over at Vicki's blog a while ago so when I got an order for a 30th birthday card for a customers daughter who's having a black evening dress party I knew exactly the stamp to use. I ordered the Pink Cat Studio Fashion plate stamps from Tracey at Dies To Die For. I made the card & delivered it yesterday & she was very happy with it.

I've been having another play this evening & have made a card that covers 3 challenges.

A Spoonful Of Sugar - Happy Birthday


Papertake Weekly - Sketch Challenge

The image has been stamped on to SU Whisper White cardstock & mounted on some black card I had. The papers are Papermania & the background square of paper is SU Speciality Wedding paper which is gorgeous & comes in black, white & cream.

The flowers have been made by punching 2 SU 5 Petal Punch flowers from vellum & I've rubbed over the centre of each petal with an embossing tool. The centre is the middle sized flower from the Boho Blossoms SU punch & I've finished off with some tiny pearl beads in the centre. I'm really pleased with how these have turned out.

I've made a double bow & threaded on a handbag charm. The sentiment is computer printed & punched out with the SU Word Window punch.

Thanks for looking.

Wow hun I agree this is really classy I love the colour scheme. You were saying about having trouble with the ounches, I so agree I have to use paper rather than card, which is a real shame as I don't own much plain paper, perhaps we shoudl compalin!!!
