Welcome to the Classy Cards 'n Such blog today....
it's Diane here with you to show you my "Simple Elegance" card I made for fall.

 
 

I love everything about this card
starting with the gorgeous Flourishes stamp set called "Autumn Blessings"
One of my favorite things about Flourishes stamps are the precise, perfect
image you get with each stamp, making them a breeze to color!
Speaking of color, I used my Tim Holtz Distress Markers and water pen on watercolor paper.
There are so many colors to work with in this set, making an easy, easy job of shading!!
You may purchase them single HERE or join the Distress Marker club HERE.
 
I mounted my piece on my newest Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight die....
I cut the die on Champaign Neenah Pearlized Metallic paper....
I love this paper, it is a nice sturdy weight and has a bit of a metallic "bling" to it!!
 
 
Underneath all this goodness, is a Designer Paper from Authenique "Tradition".
There are numerous paper pads to choose from HERE
 
Other items I used in the making of my card are:
 
Cuttlehug Large......this makes a onetime pass with the intricate dies, I use it every time!
Scor-tape 1/2"........this sticks and holds!!
Joy Foam Pads Small...to pop up my image
 
Thanks for visiting with me today!!

I am entering this card into a few challenges

This is simple elegance, for sure! I know I'm going to wish I'd bought this stamp set, but then I probably wouldn't get around to using it till next year. Still working on Flourishes' fall set from last year! I just love the striped paper and fancy die you chose to set off this gorgeous image. It's just perfect!
