CD Sunday Challenge - Bling it Up

I was asked this week to make a wedding card for this coming Saturday. The friends who asked for the card have a caberet act with the Groom based on The Rat Pack so they wanted a card that would reflect that. No pressure there then!

I took an A3 card and folded it in half for the base of my card. I then decided to make my own backing paper in Word made up of some of the song titles repeated across the page which I printed out in pale grey.

I then used My Craft Studio Celebrations Volume 2 for the decoupage roses. I passed my backing paper through the printer a second time to print the first layer of the decoupage. I then mounted this onto some black paper embossed with roses. I printed, cut and addedthe other layers of the roses.

I've added a white ribbon, white pearl hearts and a Marianne die cut butterfly with a body of crystals to finish off.

I thought this would be nice for the CD Sunday challenge this week of "Bling it Up".
