My Silky Crush True Love

Waving hello! :)

 this is my first post as a NEWBIE over on the RRR blog! to say I'm happy would be a slight understatement! I'm still floating around on Cloud 9 that I'm a part of this most fabulously amazing team of crafters....

I confess right off the bat that I have a crush on the silky crush ribbon.... yes, it's corny, but oh, so true! you'll probably find me saying that I am in puppy love with pretty much every ribbon Bonnie has in the store, but there is just something so irresistible about this line of ribbons.... so yes, I think I ordered them all. ha!

when I received my ribbon kit for this month (okay, have to stop and go SQUEAL for a moment.... isn't it fabulous?!?!!?), I noticed how well the golds blend with the champagne silky crush. bingo! card making time!

I needed a card for some friends of ours who married, so the golds went perfectly with the blues from their color scheme. the stitched satin old gold from the kit, paired with the champagne silky crush, a pop of white from the ever so lush double faced satin ribbon, and this card is ready to go!

images are from Make it Crafty, pearl/rhinestone swirl, blue roses, and gold glitter flower are all from Prima, rose buds are WOC, and button is vintage. paper is actually a Christmas one from Basic Grey - Merrily from the Juniper Berry collection. the gold stripes were perfect for what I wanted. :) little accents of shimmerz paint were added to parts of the church as well as distress stickles to the flower centers of the frame.

Challenges (wedding card):
Crafty Calendar - Sparkle, Bling, and Embellish
Craft Rocket - pearls & gems (the flourish is actually both)
