Did you enjoy watching the Royal Wedding yesterday? We did, thought everything about it was wonderful and an extra day off work too!!
For my cards today, I'm continuing with the romance theme and have made two engagement cards that I needed to make, both using these luvverly LOTV images.
My first card is for the next challenge at CES challenges and our wonderful Vicky has chosen this gorgeous piccie to use as inspiration:
Isn't that a gorgeous room!
I've coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics and just paper-pieced the parcel she is sitting on with a piece from the Webster's Pages set (Spring/Yacht/Country) that I have used for the rest of the card. Yet more Webster's that are to die for and can be bought at Emma's on line store here.
I said you'd be seeing some more of these ribbon roses! Here I've made them with white seam binding that I've coloured with my promarkers to tone in with the papers - so easy!! The leaves were made from a Marianne Poinsetta die that I cut into individual petals as they look just like leaves.
The sentiment is from LOTV, the bracket punch is from EK success and the dies are Nesties.
As always, Emma is offering a £10 gift voucher to spend in her store so hope you can join us this week. Also check out the awesome cards made by my teamies at CES Challenges- wow!!
The next card is for the new challenge over at Basic Grey challenges which has been set by the fabbie Sandie and she wants to see Charms on your card.
I've used another little LOTV image - these are just so sweet, coloured with Promarkers and Copics, and then layered up with a new Flourish Nestie and then onto this lush paper from the Curio 6x6 pad.
I didn't want to do much more than that as it would hide this gorgeous paper so just used this little heart connector charm (from Crafty Emma's, as are the gems). More ribbon flowers and that was it!!
Our regular sponsor at Basic Grey is offering the great prize of a $25 voucher to spend with them, and that of course is Simon Says:
Don't forget that you have to use a Basic Grey product to join in with the challenge (and remember to point it out to us!). Those awesome girls on BG Challenges have got some fabulous cards to share with you so don't forget to check them out.
I'm entering both cards into the current Lili of the Valley Challenge which is Love is in the Air.
That's all from me for now, the sun is shining here, hope it is where you are and that you have a fab day!
