Classic & Elegant for HoC

Last week I entered a card for the House of Cards Challenge, using the sketch top right, to make a CAS card. I have another entry for this week's challenge which is using the same sketch but, this time, a Classic & Elegant card.
I used a piece of DSP from Modern Medley, cut diagonally, then fixed to a plain card blank to give the white 'x'. The retired SU sentiment Beautiful Birthday was stamped in Black Staz-on, cut with a Labels Collection Framelit then matted onto a larger framelit cut from Basic Black cardstock. A small loop of (retired) Basic Black Satin ribbon was glued to one side of the frame before fixing to the centre of the card using dimensionals. I added three small punched flowers, from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack with a Basic Rhinestone in the centre of each one.
My apologies for posting Weds card on Tuesday evening but, as this is for a challenge, I couldn't schedule it as normal because I needed to link it up to the challenge site and I can't do that when I'm not here! If you would like to see my Tuesday's 'new home' card scroll down to previous post :0)
Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back on Thursday
