Birthday Elegance For New Release

Are you ready for another mini challenge, to celebrate Bugaboo Stamps' 2nd birthday?! We have a new one for you, today!

Today's mini challenge is to use the new Release image and make a birthday project with a bow. Another simple one! Come over to Catch The Bug and play along with us, in the newest mini challenge?!

My project, today, features today's new release, bride3,from Bugaboo Stamps. I've colored her with Promarkers. This is my first attempt at a joy fold card, and I love how it turned out. This is such a fun fold to work with! I used three different papers. One embossed with a swirly pattern, one with a slight gold sheen, and one embossed with silver swirls. The combination turned out to be quite elegant, I think. The papers are all new. The black and white polka dotted ribbon is from my stash.

I am entering this card in the following Challenges:
