Pretty in Pink Card usign the Cuttlebug

Hello everyone--hope you are doing well.  I am now a day ahead of you as I have crossed the international date line and in Hong Kong for a few days--of course I am taking pictures and trying to get some video to do where in the world is scrapguy--and I am picking up a few little things to share with all of you all as well.  
Today's card was pretty easy  I used a couple cuttlebug folders and a lot of pink to work this one out.  The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and is stretchy velvet with a sheer ruffle.  The die cut is from a sheet that came with the MME Valentine's day collection--I turned it face down and sent it through the xyron and added micro glass beads.
The photos make it look like it is hot pink--darn the flair from the camera.  It is really a nice warm pink and the colors do work well together--I promise. 
I added a strip of cuttlebugged paper and ribbon to the envelope to finish it off.  This card could also be used for a personal shower for a bride to be!
Take care and we will see you back here on Thursday (Friday for me!)

  8. Bryan,

    That is gorgeous!!! What cool ribbon! Did you emboss paper that had a white core (or did you go over it with white ink)? I love the microbeads, too (need to remember to use mine!)!

    Thank you so much for sharing and happy trails to you!
