Guylou's Elegant Challenge!

Guylou's Inimitability has a new challenge! This challenge is about elegance, and the DT was given this fabulous digi named Gertrude to make our projects with. Miss Gertrude so reminds me of my grandma in her wedding pic. They're both rocking the side part and curls, and my grandma has on her gloves... I swear they even have on the same shoes! :)

To enter the challenge, you need to make a card/project that you think is elegant. You don't have to use a GI image to join the fun. (If you'd like to use a GI digi on your card, you can find them in the store AND/OR you can become a follower of  the GI blog or join the CDAC group and get a free one!) You have until 11:59 pm EST on Dec 2 to link up your elegant entry. I can't wait to see what you make!

Oh, I want to thank the creator of this video which taught me that I can make flowers using those Prima e. Line flowers! Mine didn't quite come out like I wanted, but I think they look so much more elegant like this!
