...... the colours this weeks are just scrummy!! Soft pink, bright pink and chocolate - warm and lovely!
I love the quote on this week's graphic - I reckon chocolate is another of the main food groups :)
My Aunt and Uncle are going to reaffirm their Wedding Vows in April - such a romantic thing to do. Pretty much the whole family will be getting together to help them celebrate. These colours do conjure up feelings of love and romance, and so that's what I decided to go with for my card.
I had a lovely piece of pale pink pearly card in my stash which I folded to make the card base. I cut out the largest beaded oval in brown and threaded bright pink and pale pink ribbon through the holes - I love this technique. I made the ribbon from some hessian ribbon and strips of pink and brown card, finally I added some pale pink dotty ribbon - much better than my original idea of brown satin! I had a scrap of white card which had been embossed with Floral Fantasy, so I ran that through my bug cutting 3 hearts which I coloured, highlighting the texture. I also cut and embossed a bright pink heart - I arranged them on the ribboned mount and attached - giving dimension to the hearts. I used labels 14 which is so great for greetings - the words are so appropriate. They've been married 47 years!
