Elegant Be Mine

Hello friends! I had a chance to play along with this week's CAS challenge at Splitcoast Stampers...this one was an easy one, I think...dry embossing. This past weekend I had a chance to go out to a Hobby Lobby...which is quite a trek from me from where I live, and frankly, I didn't even know that we had one in New Jersey. I purchased this embossing folder and I thought it would look lovely paired with some Zva Creative crystal flourishes:


Simple, simple...emboss the base, add a black satin ribbon and embellish with a buckle and then lay down those crystals. Oh, and I also added a wee sentiment from Verve, this one is from More than Love set.
