Retro Elegant

I'm a little bit country AND rock & roll!
Can't quite make up my mind what my style is!
I often intend on going clean and simple, then always
get carried away.  I adore elegant but sometimes throw 
in other elements.  So my cards are just as fickle as me!
  Anyway.... This card is for a special friend
 who is a true sweetie-pie!

 I love this little Thank You charm!

I love your card! Really love the MS punch you used on the inside. I've been looking for that one, but with so many new one hitting the stores, some of the ones a little older are not in the stores. (I know I could find it on-line, I just like to use my coupons.) LOL! I also love the way you've used the colors. Hugs, dj

Stacy, this card is incredible! You have everything on it! Love all the bling, flowers, hardware, punches and ribbon. Super mixing of DPs. Thanks for showing the interior.
Oh, don't worry, being fickle is really just being super creative! At least that's my story.

WOW ... now that's what I call covering all sides of the card ... well done!
Thanks for sharing it with us at both Penny's Challenge and The Sisterhood! I look forward to having you join us again next challenge.

Annemaritta said...

This is beautiful and showing (for me at least) a new side of your creativity. Are those pearls (silver balls) added there one by one? Stiches are also something I love about this card.

Hugs from winter.
