Cuttlebug Challenge - 13

A simple white card is this week's theme at Cuttlebug Challenges.
I made a birth congratulations card for a baby girl and included pink as I felt I unsure about producing a totally white card. When I'd finished it I felt like I'd taken an easy option and that I really should have a go at an all white card. Below are the results.

The card is 6x6" I used one of the fancy corner embossing folders (three times) down the right hand side of the card and the textile folder on the right. I took some broad white satin ribbon, wrapped it around the card, pleated it so the flower sat in the middle of the pleats. I added a diamonte brad through which I threaded a pin to which I added beads and pearls. I finished it with a simple silver on white congratulation sentiment.

This is a simple C6 card with a circle cut with nestabilites in the front. I used the textile embossing folder after cutting the aperture. I cut two borders from the floral borders background dies and threaded some pink ribbon through them and fastened them top and bottom with white brads. The HM image is coloured with pastels and attached to the inside of the card. I finished the card with a pink bow fastened with a pink pearl brad.
Photographing these two was more difficult than making the cards.
Materials:
Cuttlebug, Textile and floral borders folders and floralborder die
SU flowers, pin, pearls, gems and brad
House Mouse stamp - Cozy Shoe
Derwent Pastel pencils
