House of Cards Classic & Elegant October Challenge

This month the challenge at the House of Cards is a Sketch Challenge.  Week three of the month is devoted to Classic & Elegant cards.  Week one of every month is Cute & Fun, week two is Clean & Simple, week three is Classic & Elegant and week four is Shabby & Vintage.  Here is the sketch we are using.

I found the "X" in the back to be a little challenging but here is what I came up with.

The card is all Graphic 45 French Country papers.  Come join House of Cards challenge this week and make a Classic & Elegant card.  The definition of Classic & Elegant is :  "Think a greeting card from Hallmark.  These are not really cards that fit into any other category.  They usually feature floral or other classic elements.  Less embellishments than Shabby & Vintage or Fun & Cute, but more than CAS."

Looking forward to seeing your cards.
Happy Crafting!
