SSC185 & JUGS66




I had a wonderful evening of stamping although it took me awhile to get going! My Mojo is in slow motion I think! Two days for one card ~ yikes!

I followed the layout from the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #185....well, I sort of followed it


I then came across the JUGS challenge this morning and they were calling us to dress up the inside of our envelopes, I've always wanted to do this and so I rose to the challenge!  
             
So here is my card and the matching envelope ~ I created my card using Basic Black & Whisper White CS and heat embossed the Fifth Avenue rose using White EP. The effect is absolutely stunning!


I love the simple elegance of this card, I placed the small pearls in between each scallop along the bottom edge of the card. Each of these panels are adhered using dimensionals, the layered effect is beautiful.


After I stamped the large rose on the top corner and punched the Scallop Border of my Whisper White, I adhered it to the inside of my card. I wanted to keep this simple and clean, so considered this done!


thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your time with me ~ have a wonderful day!
