Card Style Classy and Elegant


Here is my elegant card for Cath's Classy and Elegant Card Style challenge.  I used 3 of my all-time favorite Hero Arts stamps, Antique Brocade for the background, stamped in my favorite Stonewashed (Adirondack ink), Heart-Winged Butterfly, special to me because of the many hearts on its wings, and my favorite sentiment from the All Occasion Messages clear set.  I stamped the background and sentiment on some ivory parchment cardstock, edging the bottom in doily lace, then just added a ribbon and some pearls.  The blue cardstocks are 2 in a monochromatic set by Core'dinations called indigo.  The butterfly was stamped in denim Adirondack ink and Versamark and clear embossed.
