Elegant Challenge

Elegant Challenge
According to the free dictionary. com, the word elegance is defined as:
n pl -gances-gancies
1. dignified grace in appearance, movement, or behaviour
2. good taste in design, style, arrangement, etc.
3. something elegant; a refinement

We are having a challenge over on Guylou's Inimitability Blog.  The Challenge is to make a card with an elegant theme, however you interpret that!!!  You can enter as many cards as you would like, but to be a winner of the Challenge you must use one of Guylou's images.  You don't have one you say?  Well why not?  You can find one at Guylou's store, you can get a freebie over at CDAC, or become a member of Guylou's blog and get a free image.   So what does ELEGANT mean to you?  When I saw what the challenge was and the image to be used, I thought of, little black dress, pearls, heels, makeup, a night out on the town.  Here is the card that I came up with:
Isn't this paper just fabulous?  It is by Graphic 45, En Vogue.  I added some pearls at her neckline and finished with black and white clear flower buttons and a black satin bow.
The copics I used today are:
Skin: E-000,00,02,93
Gloves and Slippers: E-30,31,33
Dress: C-00,01,03,05
Hair: Y-21,23,26
I hope that you will play along, or hop on over and grab a free digi for a future challenge, we would love to have you.  There are some gorgeous cards over there!!!
