Elementary Elegance...



This Elementary Elegance Stampin Up set has been sat on my shelf unused so thought it time I made a card with it.  I've used S.U. Melon Mambo card which I love with black and white.  Embossed the background with a Stampin Up Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, added a border across the centre using S.U. Eyelet punch other S.U. punches used are circles and Curley label. Tonic small flower punch and Whimsey corner dies.
DP is also S.U.
ALthough I've used tiny silver brads in the centre of the flowers I've used silver pearls on the eyelet border.


Thanks for looking...


Anne
