Bridal Shower

I made this card for a friend at work that is going to a bridal shower on Saturday. She wanted the colors to be bright pink, black and white and the only instructions she gave me were to make it sassy. I hope I achieved that effect. I did emboss the heart from Time Well Spent with Iridescent Ice embossing powder and used several dimensionals throughout the main image. The small black panel underneath the main image has been punched with half of the 1/2" circle punch on each end and then the organdy ribbon wrapped around it. I think I did OK with the ribbon after getting instructions from the ribbon tying queen, Nancy Riley. Go check out her blog and you'll see all her beautiful ribbon tying, along with some beautiful cards, first hand. TFL!!

I like how you did the ribbon around the middle using the circle punch. It gives a little extra depth and more room for the awesome bow. I really need to watch the bow-tying videos that are out there on the blogs. I would definitely consider this card SASSY! Mission Completed.
