Pretty in Pink Wedding

The bones of this card are from a recent stamp camp I attended. I switched things up a bit by adding a DIY ribbon flower, and some fancy beaded ribbon.

Color Inspiration
Paper Play Challenge ~ Brown and ?? (I chose Melon Mambo)
365 Cards 365 Cards Day #73 ~ Tri-Colored (Melon Mambo, Soft Suede, Pink)

365 Cards Day 22 ~ Movie Monday: Alice in Wonderland
I know, you're thinking, HUH? How was this card inspired by Alice? Well, for me colors are always a big inspiration. I loved the bright, bold hues in the movie which led me toward Melon Mambo. I'm also intrigued with the shrinking part of the story. I didn't have a mushroom stamp, but the silhouette of the daisies gave me the same feeling Alice must have had when she was in mini form.
365 Cards Day 64 ~ The 3 F’s: Fringe, Fairy tale and Favorite color
Based on my previous explanation, the fairy tale part is Alice in Wonderland. The beaded ribbon is fringe and my FAV SU color right now is Melon Mambo.
