Something Old ... Something New ...

... Something Borrowed
... Something Blue.


Soooooooo ... What immediately springs to mind when you see those words?
Could it be WEDDING!
That was Challenge #31 theme this week at Funky Fairys and if I'm really quick then I may just make it before the deadline.

As a change, I decided to make a card for the happy couple to give to someone who helps to ensure their day is special ... the Bridesmaid.
**To see the greeting more clearly just click on the image to enlarge.**

Something Old ... Greeting from a QVC kit
Something New ... Blue Ribbon
Something Borrowed ... Organza Flower from an old hair slide
Something Blue ... Funky Fairys Distressing Vines Paper and DCWV Vellum Quote

The pattern on this paper is really subtle and you have to look closely to make out the pale swirly vines ... it's very elegant and pretty and perfectly compliments the lovely patterned ribbon which decorates the bottom and the left side of the card.
Using the decorated ribbon is my passport to enter as a latecomer to Bubbly Scrumptious Weekly Challenge #3 and that means I can go to bed a happy bunny.

Nighty Night ... Sleep Tight.
