It's a Just Us Girls wild card challenge!
Pam's DD is getting married this weekend, and in honor of the wonderful nuptials, Lisa, our hostess this week, is challenging all of us to make a card with a wedding theme.
ADDENDUM: This card also qualifies for the Moxie Fab challenge: Let's Do Classy and Elegant.
I used some gorgeous sei poppy paper - I love how subtle it is. I wanted a nice pop of a rich color - what color could be better than red? The rose was stamped with a text background in smokey shadow ink then stamped and embossed with white embossing powder. I added some shading with my R29 copic marker but it's hard to see in the picture. Here's a close up...
The ribbon is plain ol' white seam binding (Hug and Snug). The scalloped paper is smokey shadow cardstock that has been dry embossed with the In Bloom impression plate from Papertrey Ink. We're going to a wedding in August so I've got just the occasion for this one :)
If you already haven't, see the JUGS site for all the challenge deets and to see a pic of Pam with her lovely daughter. Don't forget to swing by the blogs of the other JUGS DT gals and show them a little love :) Their links are posted on the side bar of my blog. This is Debbie's last week as our Guest Designer for the month - she's done such a wonderful job with her gorgeous creations so make sure you check out her blog and leave a lil' bit o' love. Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls - we love seeing your creations and always appreciate your support!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
