Simple and Elegant

When Philippa from Lime Tart got some new stamps from Crafts and Me I had lots of favourites and one of them was Art Deco Lady with Fan. Isn't she so elegant and sophisticated, I thought she would be great for adult cards.

I also thought she would look fabbo in purple but when I came to make my card I didn't have much in the way of purple stash.....LOL. So I found these gorgeous Websters papers with purple and black, added a Martha Stewart Doily Tag topped with a Prima flower and lots of stitching and finished it off with my sentiment. Simple and elegant and I love the way it turned out.

I would like to enter her into Crafts and Me Challenge - We Are Stitches.

Thank you for popping by and for your lovely comments!!!
