A Touch of Elegance.........

Good morning all :)
Wow!! It's July!!! Which means that we're half way through 2014!  What happened to the first 6 months?? They've whizzed by!  In another 6 months Christmas will be over and we'll be starting a New Year!!! Eeeek!!!
Moving swiftly on Lol .............................. ;)

Thank you to everyone who took part in the June challenge at Tattered Lace...it was great to see so many fab creations for the Guys.

Our theme for July is....Elegance.... an easy one as far as Tattered Lace dies are concerned! The hardest part is choosing which dies to use!! :)
Soooo...after a few cups of coffee and several stages of whittling down...I chose ....

Dies used:
Over the Edge Baroque....
Doily Corner dies...
The 'belly band' was made with
Beloved Borders
Chantilly Bow (small)
One of the brand new Tattered Lace embossing Folders - Rose Garden

The background was embossed with one of the gorgeous BRAND NEW Tattered Lace embossing folders... I used vellum to make it more delicate looking...then edged with Pan Pastels for that elegant pink touch...as have the Doily corners.
Inside this criss cross card I have cut two of the Corsets, gathered Tulle and sandwiched it between the layers. To finish it off I've added two of the beautiful diamante flowers from Tattered Lace and also a few single Diamante.

I hope you'll come and join us for the Tattered Lace challenge this month...you'll find it hard to make something other than elegant with these stunning dies!!  :)

Happy Crafting
