Classy and Elegant-ME?

I didn't think I will or could make "classy and elegant" card....well, it's just not me. But then I was working on the projects for Tiffany Doodles with this LOVELY Daisy Bloom image. ( I LOVE this daisy as you can see from my mew blog banners!!)  Before you know it, I had this card made with a somewhat classy and elegant take, I think.
Thanks very much
This is also the first time that I used the Japanese masking tape that my DD Stephanie bought for me from her trip to Singapore. It adds a very subtle layer over the embossed butterfly paper.
I also used clear Stickles for the edges of the daisy petals.
 Just for the fun of it, I am entering this card in the Moxie Fab Let's Do Classy and Elegant Style Challenge (see here). Hope this qualifies in classy and elegant category!
 Thanks so much for your encouragement and comments. My family thinks I'm addicted to blogging ...and yeah, card-making, the whole package :) and they are so right!

Very classy and elegant indeed. You have a number of elements that reinforce the theme and work so well together. Purple is a classy color to begin with, then you have the tape and the scallops, very smart thinking! Love your card.
