Today I have a card made using the new Spellbinder dies and embossing folders. 

Supply list;
Spellbinder shapeabilities Damask motifs and Ribbon buckles.  Spellbinder M-bossabilities Patchwork.
Martha Stewart edger punch Garden rail.
Bling and ribbon from stash.

I personally love the simplicity of black and white when using very decorative Spellbinder dies and Martha Stewart punches because there is so much going on with the die shapes.  I find less is more creates a more elegant classy finish.  Or that is my theory anyway!   The ribbon and bling just bring the card together.

Today I have had to crack on with some housework much to my disgust as the weather is glorious outside again today, we are so not used to this in the North of Scotland. 
On the upside the lovely weather has brought the dolphins to our shore and I took great delight in seeing them bobbing about yesterday when out for a walk in the sunshine.  I never tire of seeing them.  There is just something magical about them.  It fairly made my day.
I'm going to crack on with some more housework now...don't you just love having visitors!  Boo!  I'd much rather be outside or crafting.  Still if I'm good and get it all done I can play tomorrow instead.

So elegant and classic looking...just love it and am gong to look thru my dies and try something similar.
Finally getting around to leaving some replies.
Dh doing better and out with a friend for lunch! Gives me time to leave a few comments...I so should be cleaning my house but...just b4 he had the heart attack I had torn my scraproom into a huge mess pulling things out and starting to organize it. It only got started and right now it is a scary, scary mess!
So I should be finishing that job It will take about a week of full evenings:(
or a couple of nonstop days:(
Instead I sit on my backside visiting all the lovely blogs in the bloggyland.

Once the scary is sorted, I am so trying this card!!!
