Retiring Stamp Set Sneak Peek #11

Here's an elegant wedding card I put together the other day! 
It features the Always Elegant stamp set that is retiring on May 31.  I love the swirls and curls in this stamp set - so beautiful :).

We started with a Pool Party Mist card base and embossed it with the Elegant Lines Embossing folder with the Big Shot.  I think the swirls on the Elegant Lines coordinate really well with the swirls on the stamp, don't you?.  Then we stamped the image and "Always" in Soft Suede on a Very Vanilla piece (layered on top of a Soft Suede piece) and added a few Basic Pearls to the swirls.  If you don't already own the Basic Pearls, these are a must-purchase!  They are such a great way to add a little texture and dimension, not to mention elegance, to your cards!
