Fabulous You for the Paper Players {PP231}

Hi there, friends!  I am hosting a lovely (I think) color challenge over at The Paper Players...wanna see?  Thought you might:
Pretty isn't it?  When I selected these colors, I had Valentine's Day and SU's "Stacked with Love" DSP in mind but as it turns out, I needed a wedding card!  Of course, these "love"ly colors work just as well for a wedding too.
I was not at all concerned about making this card too girly.    I don't know the groom at all and the bride is a colleague so really this card is for her.  I've always thought the shoe from the [retired] Fabulous You set looked like a wedding shoe and couldn't wait to use it on this card.  Heat embossed in white on black, it's so elegant!
Elegant but...just a little too plain, so I added an embellishment made with some retired Calypso Coral organza ribbon and a little double layer flower punched with the Itty Bitty Accents punch. 
The enveloped punch board makes the sweetest little envelopes!  This one ended up being 2" x 3.5"--just perfect for a gift card on the inside!

You know what else is perfect?  All the inspiration from The Paper Players Design Team!  Be sure to check them out with the links below.  Then head to your craft space and join in the color challenge before it closes on Friday, February 13th at Noon (PST).  Thanks for stopping by today!

STUNNING wedding card!! I love your bright touches of colored ribbons and flowers. My favorite part is the inside of the card! That is absolutely genius!

I am so late with my last week's comments - please forgive me! I love the embossed shoe in white on black, it looks so elegant. The use of the coral and red for just a smidge of colour totally works - and the inside is almost as good as the outside. What a great colour challenge this has been!
