An Attempt at Elegance

Sometimes the cute just doesn't cut it! Now that is rare for me, but still once in a while I have to make an attempt at making an elegant card. :)

This card is fairly simple with the kraft layer distressed and the top black layer embossed. The Music sheet was sprayed with Treasured Hymn Shimmerz and then smashed into a ball so it would look older and tear easier. The black Spellbinders diecut was also sprayed with Shimmerz. I cut two slits in the music heart to slide the ribbon through and topped it with a bow. The sentiment stamps is from Verve and the bling from Michaels.

Hope you all are having a wonderful Saturday. I am waiting on pins and needles for my hubby to get home, though who knows when that will happen. :)

Perfectly shabby chic! BTW, on your blog photo are you looking out of a car window? Or are you in a frontloader washing machine?

Warmest wishes, Lesley
