Breakfast @ Tiffany's

The movie, 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' is a classic.  The warerobe is classy, and the jewels re big!  One of my bestfriend's daughter's name if Tiffany.  And Tiffany is getting married next month.  Today is her Bridal Shower.  And yes, the theme is 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' {smile}.  The invitation asks that you wear your best little black dress and costume jewelry.  I picked out a tank style black dress with black sandles.  I put on my pearls, and made sure my hair was big and curly.  I selected a gift card from Soma, so she could get something just for her.  
And I needed to make a card.  I wanted to make something clean, classic and Tiffany blue.  I also needed to incorporate something wedding-ish.  I used black as an accent color.
Here is what I made:

The card base is Pool Party cardstock by Stampin' Up!.  I just love this color.  I added a panel of pool party textured card stock, matted with basic black card stock, as the main panel.  I added a strip of script pattern paper by Paper Studio to the Right side of the card.  I added a strip of white crochet trim and Aqua Mist satin ribbon to the card front.  I added some machine stitching.  I machine stitched just under the top border of the white crochet trim, to hide the sewn line.
For the tag, I cut a tag shape out of the pool party card stock and heat embossed the wedding cake in white.  I puched some flower shapes out and distressed the petal tips.  I added pearl centers.  I made a multi-loop bow out of the aqua mist ribbon and attached it the tag with an antique pearl brad.
Thank you for looking!  I hope your weekend is classy and fabulous!
