Playing along again, can't get enough of a good thang

I decided to play along again with the colour challenge over at Colour Q. This time I focused more on white and black, its interesting how the same colour combo can look so different when the emphasis is put on other colours. I love this flocked patterned paper that I have used on this card, it was perfect for the look I was trying to achieve. I  finished off the card by adding some jewels to give the card a little shine.

This is also the second card I am entering over at Moxie Fab World for the Classy and elegant,Card style week challenge. This is the way that Moxie Fab has described Classy and Elegant "The classy and elegant style is polished. A shiny finish, sparkling embellishments, a rich color scheme, and sophisticated sentiment treatments are all part of the classy and elegant pedigree. Its look is regal, stunning, and dashing. And while its lines are clean, sweeping, and dramatic, it can also incorporate monochromatic color schemes with layered textures that awe and impress equally as well". Hopefully I have achieved even a little of  this in my card. I love this style and can see myself working with it on a regular basis.

The other challenges I have included-
Butterfly Bliss-My time to craft
Sparkle and shine-Anything goes

This is gorgeous. Love the bold, striking look of the black against the cream and the visual triangle with the butterflies is wonderfully graphically influenced. So talented! Px
