Cuttlebug Challenge - Be Inspired #40

The Cuttlebug Challenge - Be Inspired #40 was a sketch challenge this week, and the bonus folder to use was the Textile one. I thought an elegant card was just the thing for the Textile embossing folder, so I've made a wedding card!


I've used red and black cardstock, white shimmery paper (all by Pedigree Paper)and a soft grey flowery DP by EK Success - it looks a bit paler in the photo than it is in real life. Also used Labels 4 and Curved Rectangles Nestabilities dies, red organza ribbon (recycled from some gift packaging, Martha Stewart rhinestones (from a Cuttlebug Challenge Blog prize!) and Kaiser pearls - the pearls are all white, even though the one's on the left look red from the organza ribbon over them! The greeting is from a Christina Re clear stamp set.

I like how this card turned out, hope you do too! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

it looks so elegant and beautiful. Certainly wouldn't be another like it for the recipients, so it becomes extra special and 'unique' too. I have no idea what nestabilities are/look like can you believe (where have I been hiding), so I'll go do a web search right now and be "informed".
