To accompany the Peaceful Place SDSP I have used Evening Evergreen as the card base and layered it with Silver Foil added a little Evening Evergreen Open Weave ribbon and Genial Gems after I had stamped the greeting from the stamp set For Unto Us in Evening Evergreen.

On the inside of the card I have carried the same theme through and added the silver foil and the strip along the bottom of the Peaceful Place SDSP that I had trimmed from the front.

You could do this with any colour you liked, Night of Navy would be fantastic as Blue and Silver go so well together or even Real Red and Cherry Cobbler and use the Holiday Rhinestone Gems or the Red Rhinestone gems to add your bling. The possibilities are endless.

I love how you stamped the sentiment directly onto the DSP, Sharon, and I really like your choice of Evening Evergreen to use in conjunction with that beautiful paper and foil. Nicely done. x

Sharon you've showcased the DSP beautifully in your card and the Evening evergreen is an elegant colour choice to go with these gorgeous silver tones.

Rosa Leyden said...

Very elegant card Sharon and the Evening Evergreen is a lovely choice with this DSP.

Claire said...

Such an elegant card Sharon. I was surprised how well the Evening Evergreen works with the silver foil. That's the perfect style sentiment for this card too.

Tina said...

Your paper is the perfect choice for this card, and I love the sentiment you've paired it with. In my head I am hearing a church choir singing a cappella, and it sound amazing! LOL!

As you said you have let the DSP do the talking and your lovely card is doing just that. Beautiful in its simplicity

Michele Taylor said...

There are just so many gorgeous DSPs in the SU range Sharon and the one you have chosen to feature on your quick and easy but oh so elegant card is no exception.

Kate Morgan said...

This is just lovely Sharon. I love the peaceful scene and the sentiment stamped directly onto the dsp. The Evening Evergreen ribbon and silver foil add an elegant touch.
