The young lady across the road from us, whose 21st birthday card I made last year (here's a link) became engaged last weekend. She and her fiancé are chefs and they had a Mad Hatter's Tea Party theme for their engagement... it was seriously good food, and the cake was FABULOUS (I hope to get a copy of one of their photos - I will share it; yup it was that good! I made a card/gift card holder "in theme"
I used Saturated Canary's Queen of Hearts image, I've had it for ages (like so many of my digis) and finally found time (and the ideal opportunity) to use it. I've coloured with Copics, Saturated Canary has Pretty Pastels for their challenge theme so I'm entering there, The Pink Elephant has Spring Colours, Fab'n'funky Challenges has Spring, The Corrosive Challenge has Spring Fling and Joanna Sheen has Spring into Spring so I'm entering there too. Colour Me Copic has All About Hair - Queenie here has plenty of hair, I'm in ;)
The papers are from Kaisercraft's Made With Love Collection, the background paper is foiled, the bracket border is one of the die cuts from the pad and the pink heart border is Martha Stewart's Lace Heart Edge punch. The pink hearts with the happy couple's initials on (stickers) are Mpress dies, I was going for a playing card look.
The inside of the card has more of the Made With Love paper and die cuts and a sentiment I got from Ginger's House, so many lovely freebie sentiments, thanks Ginger >:D< I left the inside cover as a "pouch" for a gift card. Stamping Sensations has Celebration Other Than Birthday as their challenge theme, so I'm entering there. Bearly Mine Challenges, 2 Sisters Challenge and Catch the Bug all have Anything Goes challenges, so I'm entering those.
That's it for today's card... see I CAN do a short post :)) I'll be back in a few days, life's still very busy helping with my darling twinnies... they've been weighed again today; Emily has put on 200g since she left hospital and Nathan has put on a whopping 250g - he's trying hard to catch up with his sister, bless him, he's still tiny!
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
