Fabulous Friday - Elegant Thank You

Happy Friday Crafters!

Well here in Michigan we are starting the weekend with 45 degree temperatures and highs around 60 degrees. Of course we are all not too thrilled with the sudden cold temperatures. The weather we are feeling today is more like the weather we experience in mid October or November. Despite the frigidness that has suddenly come upon us, I am ecstatic that its another Fabulous Friday! 

For today's card, I am showcasing the Elements of Style stamp set. This stamp set is one of my favorites and each time I use it, I find more and more ways to reveal its beauty. For this card, I created my own patterned paper with the flourish stamp from the set using basic back ink. I then continued the theme by making the flourish the actual focal image of the card. Of course to make the card a true beauty I used the elegant, yet simple color scheme of basic black, whisper white, and cherry cobbler cardstock. 
Then enhanced the image with a little embossing from the lattice embossing folder and finished the card with the thank you sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. 

This same design could be used for a wedding card or even a femenine birthday card. The possibilities with the Elements of Style set is endless. Hope you enjoyed todays card feature. 

Let me know what you think of today's design by posting a comment below.  
Until next time happy stamping.
