New beginnings at Dream Valley Challenges

It's time for another challenge over at Dream Valley Challenges. We had such a fabulous turn out for challenge 1 so keep it up girlies as we have lots of fab challenges and sponsors coming up. The theme this week is "New Beginnings" so whether it's a new baby, new job, new house or a's up to you as long as it fits a new beginning. Pop over and see what the rest of the DT have created....

This week we are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons and as it's the beginning of the month we also have our monthly sponsor One Stop Card Crafts.

My card this week is quite plain. I embossed sections of the card and layered it onto black card, the image is Mr & Mrs from LOTV which has been gently coloured with copics, I added lace and ribbon although you can hardly see the lace, I also added a couple of little pearls and a message. I have entered the following challenges:

Fussy and Fancy - embossing
Alphabet Challenge - R for ribbon
Totally Papercrafts - pearls and lace
Craft Your Days Away - black & white
One Stop Craft Challenge - Black & white and one other
The Crafty Pad - ribbon

I wouldn't say it's plain, Fi - it's classy and elegant. It's a perfect wedding card - the focus is on the gorgeous image so it doesn't need lots of fussy details. I love it! xx

Mags said...

Fi, this is so romantic! The embossing makes such a good contrast to that gorgeous image, I don't think it's plain at all!!

luv, Mags x
