Merry Monday #50

Hi there

It is time for this week's Merry Monday #50 challenge.  This week it is a theme challenge - ELEGANCE.

Definitions of elegance include  'tasteful opulence in form, decoration or presentation'.  When I think of elegance, I think of monochromatic designs and sparkle.  I love jewel colours for Christmas and together with silver and sparkle this is what I have for you today.  I initially chose Midnight Muse for the main colour with the silver embossed 'Star Tree' encased in silver glimmer. This stamp was given to me by a lovely friend and it is the first time I have used it.  It is very detailed, but heat embosses beautifully.

For the inside, I have used the same elements again in the reverse colours to maintain the elegant look.

This is a design that is easy to replicate, so I took the opportunity to make another two, also in jewel colours.  This one is in Raspberry Ripple.


This one is in Elegant Eggplant.

This one is in Island Indigo.
