Following on from my last post, I decided that I liked the challenge of using 5 different patterned papers on a I had another go.
 These papers are from Cosmo Cricket and October afternoon, and I love the colours.
 I struggled a bit with deciding on the lettering for the title but when I spotted these American Crafts Thickers at Papermaze last Saturday, I had to have them!

A Wedding ......

I was recently asked to make some "pretty things" for a friends wedding.
We decided on round cards for the table numbers,square background cards for the individual table plans- to be attached to a bird cage with decorated wooden pegs, and some gift boxes to hold the Bridesmaid's presents.
The Wedding  colour scheme was green, ivory and plum and I manged to match up the colour of the bridesmaids dresses to "Tangy Taffy" Bazzil cardstock.
The only extra card I needed was "Extravagance" from the  Eva basic Grey range.
And after lots and lots of cutting, punching, inking and gluing,here are the results....

Fingers crossed for a beautiful sunny day on the 17th !

Thanks for stopping by.
