in-love with in-colour...blushing bride

The second in my series of playing with the in-colours, this time its Blushing Bride! I admit, I just wasn't that taken with the colour. My first thought was we have Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink, why do we need another pale pink?! But when I got the pack, looked at the colour my opinion changed, its a lovely colour, a little dusty and it really looks great on the hostess patterned paper pack I've been playing with! I loved my upline, Rhoda's, banner cards she made a few months ago (click here to see), and thought it would make a perfect summery baby girl or even wedding card! 

Blushing Bride Congrats

Stamp Set: Just Perfect Alphabet
Cardstock: Whisper White
DSP: Blushing Bride (6x6 Hostess only), Certainly Celery
Ink: Certainly Celery
Punches: Modern Label
Accessories: Linen Thread, Brads (Pale Green-non SU- I wanted to use Certainly Celery brads but I don't have any yet!) Basic Rhinestones
Extras: Stamp-a-ma-jig, paper piercer

Isn't it such a sweet card?! I punched out the modern label punch in different patterns, fold them over and then use the stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the letters on them (the Just Perfect Alphabet fits PERFECTLY on this punch for banners). I then stuck the two sides together with the linen thread in the middle. I pierced two holes, stuck the brads through then wrapped the thread around the brads so the banner was hanging between the two. SO CUTE! I used a tiny bit of adhesive it keep the "flags" from moving around, adhered a strip of Certainly Celery dsp to the bottom and then added a rhinestone and bow to finish off the banner! 
Doesn't the banner show off the patterns beautifully! It could almost be fabric! 

Please leave a comment, they make my day!!!
