Little Black Dress

For style, and classic elegance one cannot beat the little black dress.  I was so excited when I saw this collection of papers that I knew it was a must have for Flourishes.  So we’ve put together a Kit of the Month featuring, Basic Grey Little Black Dress Paper.

The best thing I can say to you is, “if you like it, buy it now”, the quanity is limited.  I have used this paper so much  on a variety of cards.  There is such a range of papers, ribbons, buttons, and trims in this kit that you won’t be disappointed.

Here is my card for today featuring the kit.

I used a layout that Becca at Amazing Paper Grace had used.  This layout was so elegant and classic that I knew I would have to find a way to include a graphic on the card.  I used the set With Gratitude, our Flip gift for this year, setting on the Blush Blossom paper cut from our very own Tailor-Made Keyhole die.  I did a very tiny touch of toning using Copic Cool Neutrals.

I used the Spellbinder Fleur de Lis Squares, just as Becca did.  To add a touch of color I used Blush Blossom paper, Little Black dress Paper Pad, and Classic white cardstock,  buttons from the kit, then I added some blush colored pearls.  I am in love with the way this card turned out.
