Diamonds & Flourishes

It's the last week of the Romance theme at Make My Monday and we are going out with some glamour.  We would like to see:-

"Diamonds and Flourishes" as they are a girl's best friend
(Though I would prefer a nice new rubber stamp lol:)

Click HERE to see the other design team member's work on this theme!  Please also remember that we have an amazing prize kindly donated from Marianne Design for the overall monthly winner.

I have made a trio of cards in a turquoise and silver colour theme ....I must admit that I am also entering these into the Cubby Hole's "create after eight" challenge for February which was three cards in either turquoise and silver OR black and silver - no other colours were to be used.  Here is what I came up with:-

All are 6" square on silver pearlescent card.  Stamps used are Time Holtz Papillion set and TJ Designs vintage set along  with a flourish from a Fancy Pants set vintage set.  Numerous Marianne Design Dies were used including my favourite English Rose LR0162Lace Border LR0201,  Key LR0193Lace edging LR0161/ and Open Flower LR0156.  My diamonds have been added to the centre of the roses, some of the flourishes and the borders.

My photos are not particularly good - it was rather a grey day when I took these last week and then they were dropped at the Cubby Hole as this is not a virtual challenge.  I hope you can play along with us at Make My Monday.  I would also like to add these cards into the following challenges:-

I know I am on this DT but I didnt do a piece for this challenge but thought these would fit the two colour challenge.
