OWH Stars & Stamps #65: Vintage Elegant Soiree Elements of Style

Lately I've been wanting to use my Elements of Style stamp set, which is rather interesting given that I resisted purchasing it when it was recommended.  :)  Over time, its elegant and versatile components have enabled me to create some lovely cards and view an array of incredible pieces by other stampers.  In fact, they have also "enabled" me to use colors on flowers that I normally would not have considered....which ultimately led to the creation of this card below.  For more information, please visit the following link:  OWH Stars & Stamps #65:
