Just for You

I discovered Leslie's beautiful blog during one of my many Google searches. 
I absolutely fell in love with her elegant style. I decided to lift one of her cards 
and try out this elegant-y-ness for myself.

The stamp is a digi by DZ Doodles. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils, experimenting with contrast... Not sure how I feel about my coloring on this one. Anyway, the peachy colored CS is from DCWV and the seam binding is from 7Gypsies. The sentiment is Hot Off the Press.

This digi stamp is from Digital Two for Tuesday
The CS is also from DCWV and the ribbon is 7Gyspies.

I really wanted to maintain the integrity of Leslie's style. It was hard for me to resist inking and stickles and pattern paper and stick pins and charms... I did finally feel so much better when I added the pearls.

Thanks for visiting!

I'm very flattered, Alissa! Your cards are both gorgeous and elegant. Love your choice of colors and images. I like this design with the ovals. Now you inspire me! Have a great week, and thank you!
