A Wedding Card from Chantal

Hello Bloggers

Chantal explains why this particular card:

'I had a layout to send you but I was contacted by Scrapbooking Memories to post it to them so I can't give that one to you now.

I have card to share though, I make cards all the time, but I rarely put them on my blog.  Mainly because I usually make the card for an occasion and off it goes on it's merry way... out of my life and into someone else's!

So this card has been made for an upcoming wedding and I've used sketch #50 at retro sketches…'

I have made a posy out of some lovely Manor House Creations "Taneisha" flowers and all the patterned papers, transparencies, ribbon and lace trim are all from Meg's Garden.

I've mixed two collections here - The French Garden Collection (Pink Passion) and the new Ode to a Summer's Day Collection (Green Stripes of Summer).  I love how these collections can so easily be used together for colour contrast, whilst still complimenting each other so well.

I also have some fantastic news, Meg!  My layout featuring little Heidi is on the front cover of the latest issue of Scrapbook Creations!!!  Soooo excited!  I have put the cover on my blog - although I haven't seen it in real life yet (subscribers have their copies early!) - now I'm wishing I was a subscriber!!!  Lol!

Love the card Chantal & I particularly love the fact that it is not the trad white & silver wedding theme.  Well done.   The combination of papers is great; the touch of purple really creates a statement & the cluster of flowers in the same purple, yellow & pink finishes it perfectly.

Fab news on the front cover spot!!  Have put the magazine on my 'to do list' to stop in at the newsagent.

Bye for now
