This month our theme is Black, White and Whatever you like! Who doesn't like black and white with a splash of fun!? I really wrestled with my concept on this hop! OF COURSE I AM GOING TO USE BLUSHING BRIDE! No matter how hard I tried not to it just kept coming together in my head that way! In my mind I was thinking "Sweet 16".  So here we go Black, Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride with a Splash of Gold!


This great card started with a base of Blushing Bride. I then matted the Typeset Specialty DSP at 1/8" matte instead of the standard 1/4".  I made a Gold Foil Banner using our Banner Framelits and Gold Foil Paper. Next I used our Basic Black card stock with the Lots of Labels Framelits. You can see that I sprayed some Gold Heidi Swapp shimmer mist on this. The gold foil doily is from the Love Blooms embellishment kit. I created the sentiment banners using Very Vanilla card stock with the Number of Years Bundle. They were stamped with the Archival Basic Black ink, then the sentiments were heat embossed using the Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. I adhered these to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. Of course I had to use the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper for this fabulous card. So I decided to use the Large Number Framelits to cut the "16" out! I then used a combination of the Hello December and the Love Blossoms embellishment kit Sequin mixes!! To top this card off I also used the Blushing Bride satin ribbon in a cute square knot at the bottom!
Now for the purse...

I can't take credit for the tutorial for this purse! I actually stumbled on this Pin on Pinterest! I honestly don't know why I hadn't tried one before. It has a lot of room inside! You can find the tutorial on Papercraft Button! I used a sheet of 12 x 12 Blushing Bride Card Stock. I then used the coordinating DSP from Typeset so that my "purse" would coordinate with my card! The Gold Metallic Washi just became available as a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! All you have to do is spend $50! This stuff is so easy to work with! I even made the rosette with it just by pleating it onto a circle punch! I finished this with BIG bling brad from Michaels that I had in my stash!

PHEW!!! Done! I can't wait for you to see what Angela has made for you all!
