Congrats

The Paper Crafts Idol challenge is for congrats cards. I saw this beautiful cake at Cath's Moxie Fab World and was inspired to use crepe paper, glimmer mist and white acrylic paper to create this:  

The background was created by glimmer misting strips of white crepe ribbon. I then tore the misted strips and layered it onto white cardstock using my tape runner. Add  white acrylic paint by swiping over the crepe paper.

The flowers were glimmer misted to match and the embellishments added to the white tulle bow. To finish it off the congrats sticker letters are attached to the tulle.

Here is the inspiration photo:
