When I saw this week's challenge at Basic Grey Challenges, I immediately thought of trying to use some white ribbon with black flocking from Michael's. I thought it may go with this Basic Grey dp (Black Tie Collection from 2005; probably "Diamante".) I couldn't make it work, so I ended up using my Cuttlebug embossing folders. I think this "textile" folder goes nicely with the dp. The base card is Michael's Value Pack; the black cs is Bazzill; the white cs is from Wal-Mart; the dark grey metallic paper is ??? (possibly Magenta); the silver swirly ribbon is from my stash (ACMoore?); and the sentiment (on my Nesties) is a Stampendous Class-A-Peel. I used lots of SU! dimensionals on this card (some double high!)
Why did I choose to make an anniversary card? Probably because that is what I did the last time I used this dp on this card. Also, this was the last "Happy Anniversary" Class-A-Peel I have. And the dp seems too elegant to me for any other occasion. Maybe because my parents' wedding anniversary is this Wednesday. I did make them a Basic Grey card for their anniversary, but it was using Bittersweet. You will have to wait until Wednesday to see it :) I will post it then.
