CAS Wedding

I had been struggling to come up with an idea for a CAS pink + grey card so decided to start on a LOTV + charm card and when I was looking through my LOTV toppers I found this wedding one with pink + grey. I do prefer making CAS style cards but this is still a bit different for me as it is a very CAS wedding card without a bow, flower or pearl in sight and I even resisted the temptation to add some Stickles. I would be really interested to know what you think of it as I haven't quite made my mind up.

The only grey item I had in my stash apart from Memento ink was this snippet of ribbon (that had originally meant to hold a top in place on a coat hanger - I always cut those out and store them in my ribbon box just in case) It is a bit darker than I would have liked but at least it matches the grooms hat band. I used Xcut nesting dies to cut and layer the image and found a snippet of pink spotty paper which needed no trimming. The Clearly Besotted sentiment was stamped in grey ink and the only embellishment is the little heart charm.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Less Is More challenge 'pink and grey'
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'LOTV + it's charming'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets' (my 3rd entry - gotta reduce my snippets pile)
As You Like It challenge 'favourite CAS or fussy'
Die Cut Divas challenge 'words, quotes and sentiments'

Such a pretty card Andrea, your little strip of spotty paper and ribbon are all that are needed with this beautiful image.

I love this Andrea! LOTV images are always lovely and this one lends itself to the CAS look so well.

It also qualifies for Cuttlebug Mania's current challenge, which is 'I heart you' :)

I think it came out gorgeous. I love the image and that ribbon and charm really stand out nicely against the pink polka dot paper. It is a winner in my book. Enjoy your evening.

I always keep those bits of ribbon too and very handy they have proved to be. I love how you have kept to the CAS look with this lovely card. Nothing else needed . Hugs Mrs A.

This is such a pretty image... and your card looks lovely.
It's difficult to find cardstock to match the colour of ready made toppers sometimes, I always think there is a feeling of unity when they do.
I always snip those ribbons from sweaters too... this one is perfect!
Thanks so much

Great card and great use of our colour combo.
Yes I'm another one for snipping the ribbons in clothing and getting friends and relatives to do the same for me ... I end up swamped with black and white mainly!!!
Thanks for playing along with our 4th birthday challenge this week
