Here is Sarah's first Classy Cards post! 

I am so excited to share my first card for Classy Cards 'n Such with you! I really had fun making it, especially since I was using several of these products for the first time.

I started out knowing I wanted to use the Romantique paper stack from Prima. I always love their papers, and this time was no exception! It was hard to choose, but I finally decided on a lovely piece that I knew would fit my mood ;-) I kept things fairly simple so as to play up the beautiful, soft white flowers in the print. I first distressed the edges of a piece of vellum cardstock (Stampin' Up!). I then added my patterned paper onto it. I adhered them onto my gray cardstock (Stampin' Up!) card base.
 
I used white satin ribbon (Stampin' Up!), and to make my bow look extra nice, I tied it using the Bow Easy. I love that little tool! And when I hung the cross embellishment (Michael's), I did not want the string to show, so I put on one of these wonderful little Webster's Pages Whimsy Lotus Blooms on it. These flowers are so, so pretty! 
 
The sentiment (Stampin' Up! Refuge & Strength), stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink (Ranger),  fit perfectly onto one of the tags from the Spellbinder's Fancy Tags Two die set. I added a coordinating Nestabling silver rhinestones frame over it. These rhinestones are wonderful; they just peel right off and stick on. Easy as can be, and look at the beautiful effect you get!
 
With a few white pearls I had in my stash added to each of the corners, my card was complete. Simple, elegant and a perfect "anytime" card to send someone "just because".
