PPA 93

Here is my PPA 93 challenge card.  This week's challenge is a wedding card.  I went online to see what the trendy colors are for weddings this season, and they are Honeysuckle (pink) and Tangerine.  So immediately I pulled out my Melon Mambo and Tangerine Tango and went to work.  Here is what I came up with:
I waited until Friday for my shipment of Melon Mambo embossing powder to come in, and tried it out, but it turned out whitish on the Melon mambo CS.  So I just reverted to my handy versamark and clear embossing powder.  It gave me the look I was going for.  I used the big stamp from the Bliss set, it is so pretty.  Also, the white CS is spritzed heavily in Pearl smooch spritz, but it is difficult to see.  I layered the pink on whisper white CS that had been embossed with the vintage wallpaper EF, and layered that on a tangerine tango base.  The black ribbon is the only non SU item, but felt that the black and white made a great punch of color.
The flower is quilled, I love this look and plan to incorporate more of them in my future cards.  The tiny tags were fixed under the button for a little bit of cuteness! 

On a sad note, my giraffe card is sitting on my desk waiting to be fixed.  My son Tate got away from me and I heard a "OHHHH WWEEEEE" and before I could get a hold of him, he tore the giraffe off the card and went running away with it!  It is a quick fix, but it will be OK.  Today I made him his own Elmo, and will have it laminated for him so he can play with it all he wants.  Guess I will have to do a giraffe for him as well.  Thanks for stopping by, enjoy!

What a cute card! I love the quilling technique done on your flower, something I have never tried. Love your color combo and agree how the black makes it all pop. Really Cute!!
