Penny Black has brought back this image and added it to their Slapstick line.  It just cries out "elegant" to me.  I bought a new package of papers at Hobby Lobby from the Paper  Studio that have gorgeous foiled papers and they were perfect for this card.  After stamping and coloring the image, I cut it out with a Spellbinders Nestability die.  Before I removed it from the die, I sponged the image with some Colorbox Chalk Ink.  Then I added a bit of "bling" to each of the scallops.  Hint:  check out your local dollar stores for teeny tiny "gems" at a great price.  That is where I found the ones I used.  They were actually in a kit for a cell phone cover!  I bought up several because they were so inexpensive and they have come in handy.
