So I knew I wanted to use Pink Pirouette just because it's such a soft feminine color. Now I did toy with the idea of other colors. I tried pretty much everything that was sorta pinky from Cameo Coral to Ruby Red. Nothing really had the look I wanted so in the end I just stuck with the Pink Pirouette ink as well. (Ahh good old SU and their matching cardstock and inks... gets me every time)
So that idea was modified a bit. I cut out the image a tad more and then layered it onto a 1 3/8" circle of Basic Gray. I popped those two up onto the Pink Pirouette scalloped circle and layered down a nice long sheet of Basic Gray again.
Now I couldn't very well leave the center with nothing! The original card had pearls in the center from the Pretties Kit but I've been breezing through those little suckers and now I feel the need to conserve them so I popped in a silver brad. I never realized how useful silver brads were and so much so that I actually ordered some gold brads on my last order. We'll see if I should've ordered another pack of silver instead of the gold.
So I repeated those little floral things 3 times and now I had a bunch of left over ribbon from gifts over Christmas. You know you sometimes get some pretty darn nice ribbon from gifts. I'm super cheap and I saved whatever looked even half decent. So here I've got two different ribbons to choose from. One is just a plain white satin and the other is a sheer almost cream color.
So I made my choice and hopefully you agree. If you found the white satin looked better well... too bad because it's already glued and assembled. But perhaps if I make another one of this exact card I'll try the white and see. So those little scalloped circles were popped up on the foam dimensionals.
I glued everything together and finished off the card with a simple Happy Birthday from the retired Stampin' Up set It's Your Birthday.
Now I know this picture isn't quite as good but I like the black background I tried to use. Anyways thanks for checking out another WUAC Wednesday. Hopefully my regular 2 girls continue to play and that some of the girls I've harrassed might play as well. 1:22 Am... time for bed. Maybe this is why I'm always so grouchy at work?? On a side note, I just tried to change the pictures a bit and my internet crashed. My heart skipped a beat but thank GOODNESS for auto save.
