Manhattan Elegance


Hi there, a touch of elegance for you courtesy of  Less is More where we've been given a photo for inspiration.  Take a look at these gorgeous shoes. 


I've focused on the length of those heels and the luscious ribbon detail.  

The Basic Black card base has a popped up panel embossed with the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder.  A strip of Silver Glimmer paper is also popped up on Dimensionals.  I added Satin Ribbon with an additional layer of Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon.  A tiny label sentiment finishes off from Tiny Tags and punched out with the Jewellery Tag. 

I'm sure this could be used for a whole number of occassions where a little elegance is required or perhaps some romance. 

We've been enjoying a lovely sunny day here today but unfortunately it's forecast for rain tomorrow and we are due on a picnic.  Let's hope they've got it wrong! 

Supplies Used
All Stampin' Up! 

Card - Basic Black, Whisper White

A very classy and elegant card Aileen, and a great take on the LIM photo.
Hope you had some sunshine today - it's been mixed weather here, but I guess the hot sun can't last for ever - (sob!).
Hugs, Sylvia xx

I have to admit to being a flat-shoed kind of gal so the the inspiration piece didn't fill me with inspiration. But I absolutely LOVE what you got out of it - the tall present with its silvery stripes and ribbon is just perfect!

What a great card for the theme, very elegant and definitely minimalist. The little bow just gives it the finishing touch.
