I wanted to use the Beautifully Baroque single stamp as a subtle background so I inked it with Smoky Slate, stamped it off once then stamped onto the cardstock. For the horizontal elements, I used the coordinating Eastern Elegance DSP and diecut three using the little scalloped banner framelit from the set. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Grey, stamped off once then onto Whisper White cardstock.
I stamped two butterflies, Crushed Curry ink on the same color cardstock, punched them out then adhered the centers together. After finger-shaping them a strip of four Basic Pearls was added to embellish. Other Pearls were added to each of the three elements.
Here is another version I did, only adding Brushed Silver leaves. I like it but decided to go with the simpler version. Do you ever make more than one version of a card before deciding on the final one?
