My First Card For Classy Cards 'n Such!

I was so excited to share my latest news with you this morning! And now, I am back again to show you my first card as a guest design team member for Classy Cards 'n Such!

This is what I came up with, using several wonderful items from the store:

The beautiful patterned paper is from Prima's Romantique 6x6 paper pack.
I love the soft white swirls and flowers along the edges and in the corners.

I stamped the sentiment (from SU! Refuge & Strength set) onto white card stock which I had die cut using one of the Spellbinder's Fancy Tags Two dies. I added a coordinating silver Nestabling rhinestone tag over it.

After hanging a silver cross charm from white satin ribbon, I added a sweet little Lotus Bloom from Webster's pages on top of the bow. I love these flowers!
Notice how nicely the bow came out. That's because I used my Bow-Easy :-) What a great little tool that is!

Pearl stickers in the corners add a nice soft touch without covering too much of the pretty paper's print. Behind is a layer of vellum card stock which I had distressed. Everything was layered on top of a gray card stock base.

So there you have it: My first card for Classy Cards 'n Such! Please be sure to stop over to their blog to see my card there- as well as all the great cards from the design team!
