For the Newlyweds

Today's card was created by combining two card challenges: Dynamic Duos and Mojo Monday. I love both of the challenges this week! One thing I love about Mojo Monday sketches are the multiple layers and the potential for lots of detail. That is usually my type of card! And the Dynamic Duos colour combo this week is so soft and elegant.

When I looked at the colour combo of Soft Suede and Crumb Cake, "wedding" came to mind. So, I decided to create a card for newlyweds:

A beautiful piece of designer paper from the Comfort Cafe collection fit perfectly with this theme and colour combo. I wrapped Soft Suede striped ribbon around the card front and layered cardstock in the monochromatic colours. On the top layer I created an embossed look by adding strips of ribbon border in Very Vanilla. The flower is the focus of the card. It is popped up using dimensionals and an antique brad holds the two flowers together. I popped up the sentiment "For the Newlyweds" and added pearls to embellish it.

This card measures 5" x 5" and I made a matching envelope in the coordinating colours. I just love how elegant it looks!
