Blogger's challenge And Kristina Werner's color combo

It's so funny that in the back of my mind, I can't resist doing a Kristina Werner challenge. I had it all in my mind that i was going to skip it this week. Then while making my texture card for Bloggers challenge, I couldn't help myself to use the black white and grey challenge from Kristina! :)

I just love the taste of textiles paper. there is a shimmer and some lines, and this photo really doesnt do the finished product product justice.
I started with going grey ink on my texture plate, and I laid the very shimmery white on top. I ran it through the texture plate with the ink on it. It's very subtle and you can see it so much better in person.
The sentiment "A day to remember, a lifetime of love" is from the occasions mini and I just couldnt resist it. You can really see it in person, but in the photograph the shiney paper took over so you cant see the words. It's almost like a hologram type of paper. I love it. I imagine it on the front of a wedding invitation. I've been doing invitations for friends and family and think this will be just another creative outlet to branch into. I finished it off with the satin ribbon. I tied it around and made a bow (i never do that) When i was done with that, I had a girlfriend here (hi barbie!) who said... "that looks like a present. And off I went! Two great challenges combined together. I had fun with this one.
