Ruby's Bridal Blog Hop



Hey everyone!  Today I'm taking part in a celebratory blog hop for Rubeena Ianigro (Ruby Naz).  One of the great things about this community is all the people and friendships you make, and how we celebrate achievements as well as life events together.

Ruby got married a few weeks ago, and we're keeping the celebration rolling.

Our theme/inspiration for the hop is Ruby's inspiration photo for her wedding cake:



Here's my take on it:



I loved the idea of the layers, so I created a panel of cream cardstock and gold mirror board and then used my Hooray die from Neat & Tangled to cut it.  The negative cuts were inlaid into a pink cardstock die cut.

I wanted the hooray to stand out a bit more, so I ended up cutting the whole thing once more from dark gray cardstock, snipping the hooray out and then adhering it on top of the pink.

That whole piece was then popped up over some patterned paper that I added a bit of dark gray and gold splatter to.  A couple additional pattered paper mats added some extra texture and interest.

It's hard to see the full impact of the card because that gold mirrorboard can be a bear to photograph, but this close up gives you a better idea:



 I'm keeping it short and sweet because this is a fairly lengthy hop and there is so much good stuff to see.  I'm actually the last stop on the hop.  Here's the full hop list if you're just getting started:


Now no decent hop is complete without a few prizes, right?  And there are some generous sponsors who have stepped up to help us with our celebration:



Mama Elephant $25 Gift Card
Winnie & Walter $30 Gift Card
Kennedy Grace Creations $20 Gift Card

Winners will be selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop!  Commenting will close on Saturday, October 22 at 11:59 pm pacific.  Winners will be posted on Amy's blog on Sunday, October 23rd.

Happy Hopping and huge Congrats to Ruby!!!
