By The Cute and Girly/ Feb Challenge
Well, Its the first of the month, so its also a time for a new challenge over at by the Cute and Girly! This time it was the turn of the lovely Jules to set the challenge...as we all know Jules is the queen of hearts!! so it was very appropriate that she set us the theme of....LOVE
As Many of you know I have had 3 friends get engaged in the last month, so I have been up to my eyes in engagement cards...I have still not sent them a card yet, but all my friends, and the couples families have sent them creations of mine.... Anyway this make is a little gift for one of the couples...Its a guest book that they can hand around on the big day for everyone to sign..... I had to break into my 12x12 papers for this one, as I did not have enough scraps to cover 4 sides, and make them look co - ordinated!
The paper is from "Papermania" The image is from " le Blanche" I have coloured with copic's and hand stitched the mats. Then of course loads and loads of stickles....well it is for a wedding!!!!!
I dont know why...but I really Love this little card..the cupcake images are from "Polka Doodle - Love and cherish" cd. which I have coloured using my copics.
The papers are from the old scrap pile....the pale pink paper is "HOTP" and the patterned paper down the spine is "Papermania" again I have added a touch of stickles and some gems.
My final make is again from my scraps! The paper is "Daisy D" I didn't quite have enough paper to cover the card, hence the stitching detail down the side! The fab image is from "Marij Rahder" I have coloured her in with copic's...and again added some sparkle with stickles!
I think I need to start using some sketches again....I had stopped following them for a little while, as every time I attempted to follow a sketch it all went wrong, and I ended up fed up, not accomplishing anything...and saying I was going to get rid of my stuff and give up.....So I thought I would do my own thing, as I used to do before life in blogland. All these makes were made at different times during last month, I thought I had a lovely variety but now I have put them together, I have realised that they all that exactly the same layout!! LOL!! Any hoooo,
