Elegant Floral

I am always getting teased by my fellow demonstrator friends that I don't always need a sentiment on a card, kinda like I don't always need ribbon.

This card just looks elegant to me, what do you think?


Definition of Elegant:
el·e·gant (ˈeləɡənt, adjective)
pleasingly graceful and stylish in appearance or manner.
"she will look elegant in black"
synonyms: stylish, graceful, tasteful, sophisticated, classic, chic, smart, fashionable, modish


When I first made this card, I had planned on adding a sentiment as usual, but when I went to record the tutorial I decided to not add one.


For this card, I think a sentiment on the front would take away from the elegance of the flowers and embossing.

Last year when the embossing paste debuted in the annual catalog, I wanted to look for ways to use it then just the norm.

I began to play with the rubber stamps to make an impression, my first attempt was on a scrapbook layout.  Which happens to be one of my favorite layouts in the past few years.


This card has lots of texture, there is cardstock diecuts, embossing powder & paste, and yes a little  ribbon.

So where is the sentiment going on this card, inside!  Yes I met the challenge by my lovely friends, and now I can get back to adding sentiments to the front again...hahaha
