Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images

Happy, Happy Monday Everyone!

It's time for another Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images and today's Featured Image is 'Top Hat' ... perfect for those prom, wedding, and very-special occasion cards.  Did you know that you can get the featured image at a reduced rate for a limited time??  You'll want to be sure to pop on over to our blog and check that out!!

I thought that 'basic black & white' with a SPLASH of RED would be perfect for today's creation.  Always a CLASSIC color combo.  The background panel was cuttlebugged and my main image is showcased using a Spellbinder lacy square die cut panel.  Coloring was done using Prismacolor markers and I have popped up the Crystal Effect covered rose using pop dots.  A touch of fancy silver trimmed ribbon from Michael's and a couple sprays of pearls was all the added elegance this creation needed.  (see close up below)
