A card for 3 challenges

I have made this card for 3 different challenges, as i get bored doing the same thing time and again this is a bit different for me but as you may have gathered i do like to try doing allsorts of different styles of cards,
The challenges are;
  1. Fab and funky 14 - Wedding
  2. One stop 70 - sew simple
  3. Ooh lala - anything goes

well for this card its obviously a wedding card so that explains itself, ive done faux stitching on it i hope that still counts? and if anything goes then thats covered too lol,

To make this card i used;

  • dovecraft backing papers
  • wedding cake rub on
  • nesties labels (3) i think
  • purple shiny oearly papers
  • computer generated sentiment
  • lovely organza ribbon
  • cream silky ribbon tied together from craft central
  • sakura pen for faux stitching

And thats it this card was actually quite simple and i love the way the ribbons look tied together,took me a while to get them just right but i like them now lol, i know the colour combo maybe a bit out there but i like giving everything a go to see what end product looks like lol
