... for my Aunt and Uncle's Reaffirmation ceremony - that's the card I've made for this week's Just Us Girls JUGS70 challenge. And you may recall that I made their Celebration card using our wonderful colours from this week's CR84FN14 challenge - so I used them again on the acceptance - they're such a romantic set of colours!!
I had such fun making the Celebration Card for Ian and Sue, that I completely forgot to make the Acceptance Card!!! Am I silly, or what? I have accepted via the phone, but it's nice to get a card acceptance. I really like this week's JUGS sketch - and it coordinates perfectly with my Celebration card.
I used a pale pink base card (A6) and made a ribbon to go across the card. I used some of the bright pink card that I had left and punched the valentine hearts along each side of the card. On to that I added a thin strip of the brown card to which I'd attached some of my pale pink spotted ribbon. I made the flower from some Petaloo cream mulberry flowers - I tinted them all to match, and held the flowers together with a large bright pink brad. My favourite labels 14 dies were used to make the brown tag - which I overstamped and clear embossed to give some pattern. I added the bright pink heart and some pearly swirls, and finished off with the sentiment - to thank them for inviting us!
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Nestie Eggs (pattern on the tag), Fancy Phrases
Inks: Distress - Spun Sugar; Memento - Rich Cocoa
Spellbinders: Labels 14 (S4-290) die # 2
Accessories: Ribbon, card, flowers, pearls - from stash; Martha Stewart edge punch
I'm really pleased how well this turned out! I do have a couple more cards - will post them later this afternoon.
