Bah! Humbug! 41

Sorry I'm a bit late this week but things have been rather hectic with a horse emergency over the last couple of days.  However ... things have quietened down now, the panic is over and tears have been kissed away,  so on with the show.
For this week's Elegance Challenge at Bah! Humbug! I decided to keep it simple with a black and white colour combination and some embossed stamping.   
The gorgeous silhouette birds are Inkadinkadoo stamps, which I think are beautifully elegant and they work wonderfully when teamed with the fabulous Peace stamp from Clarity Stamps.     
Everything was stamped with black ink and then embossed with holographic powder for a lovely touch of shine.   
A little bit of black card for matting and trios of adhesive gems are all the extra touches that are needed.
Further examples of elegance can be found by my teamies and our Guest Designer Jenny at Bah! Humbug! so pop over there and take a looksee.
I am heading off to Dundee now with Naomi for some bowling coaching, so catch you all later.  It's all go y'know!
