For a special birthday I wanted to do something bright but elegant. So I embossed one half with a birthday embosser and the other half with patterned paper. The die cuts are made out of bright purple, lavender and red cardstock. I played around for awhile with the middle and the ribbons and then wound up using all three. I think the lace adds more elegance and texture. Topping off the elegance and staying in theme with the lace, I used a white silk flower embellishment for the flower center and tiny pearls on the ribbon on the pot. I think the straight alignment of elements gives this card a clean and simple look while also adding to its elegance.
