Elegant Ladies

Hello and welcome thank you for dropping by. It's my turn to host the Make My Monday challenge and I would like to see 
 Elegant Ladies 
 featured in your makes. 
Here's mine
 there's only one bit of stamping on this card ... which is the strip of lace, from Chocolate Baroque, in Vintage Sepia on the left of the "Elegant Ladies"  The backing papers are from a gorgeous digi paper set called "Star Crossed " from Gecko Galz and bits and pieces from my lace stash. As for the lovely main image I've no idea where it came from but it too is a digi image
I coloured this flower which I cut out of a ribbon strip, then swiped DI Tattered Rose over it and stuck some pearls into the centre. I distressed around the papers and image with Tattered Rose and Antique Linen .. the first DI's I bought  and could be my favourites :)
 Now  for this card I used a Heat Gun for the first time. I got on famously with the pearled lace but when it came to this flower I got in a bit of a mess! The glue wasn't coming out of the nozzle, the plastic cover around the nozzle dropped off! then I noticed the stick of glue had melted at the back!! what a mess. Guess what it's now in the bin! I thought it was going to be so much quicker!!
You'll also notice the flower on my card isn't pink! ... I decided it looked better without the added colour and changed it. but forgot to take a photo.


 Hope you can join us at MMM this week, the DT have made some very elegant cards to inspire you and there will be another  make from me on Wednesday for your Mid Week Motivation
  Enjoy your week.

This is beautiful Sue. Oh so elegant! I never use digi images/backing papers for some reason. I was going to say it's because I really don't get on with computers but to be honest I think it's as much that I don't get on with the printing side of things. They never do what I want them to, lol! The elements you've brought together here are gorgeous and that flower is stunning!

Hugs
