Getting into the mood for...

... a Royale wedding.
It seems like the colors blue / red / white are everywhere at the moment.
Obviously everybody is feeling very patriotic with the wedding coming up! Are you going to watch it? I think I will as I am a real sucker for wanting to look at wedding dresses.
On the Ribbon Girl's blog they are celebrating the event by organising a competition using the nationals colors as the theme.
I already made this color combination during one of my Sunday's Color Combination a few weeks back but as I did really like it but they only accepted new projects especially for this challenge I decided to have a go at using the same colours while doing something new.
I love the result! All the ribbons and bakers twine were bought form the Ribbons Girl's shop although this wasn't a condition for your entry.
So here is my card:

There is a fair bit of layering.
I have part embossed the light blue cardstock on one side and then border puched the other side.
I have layered on top of it some white sheer ruffle edge ribbon, some red saddle stitch ribbon and some bakers twine.

I then added some die-cut labels topped by a thicker that I heat embossed in gold and a button that I got in a button box I bought on e-bay.

I love the final result! It is bang on trend with it's naval feel but I think it has a bit of a 50's feel about it.
I hope you like it too!
See you soon!

Such a bright funky card, I love it! All the layering is great, and I love the way you've used the button as the zero. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier :D

Emilie - that is a very nice card - love the way you've put the bakers twine on top of the ribbon and your brass button works a treat! Thanks for joining us in the Ribon Girl colour challenge, Mary G x
