Here's a beautiful image from Ike's Art combined with some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress and lovely lace that I got while in Istanbul last summer.  I think this combo is so striking and it makes a very elegant card that you could use for many occasions.  The image is called Athena #2.  Ike's art is having a wonderful challenge, it's being inspired by a beautiful photo of a Greek Island and city with ladies of beautiful traditional garb.  I thought this Greek Goddess would be perfect.

The base of the card is a wonderful black cardstock called Eclipse Black.  The image is printed out on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest paper.  The image was then layers on some gorgeous glamour gold glossy cardstock which really makes it pop.  I added a simple sentiment to the front using a cardstock sticker along with some pearls.
