Catching up nicely!



Phew! Managed to get another 3 challenges sorted with this card. The "Happy Couple" are by Marjie's Malarkies. Marjie has 2 cds for sale with loads of Bobby and Lotty images, they are a real cute couple so you might want to check it out.

Now this card nearly got out of control, Digital Tuesday challenge#54 set a paper piecing challenge and I thought Marjie's little creations would be ideal for this kind of project. I thought I could combine it with the coulor combi from Critter Sketch Challenge#9 Pink/Purple/Green. So good so far! Then I thouhgt Bee Crafty Downloads#28 engagement/wedding/anniversary. Brilliant! But I forgot about my patchwork fetish! I printed the image out onto several different papers (one plain white for base image) and started cutting out all the little sections to rearrange and overlay. Took me 2 hours to decide which pieces to use.....

Anyway, I think it turned out good in the end. Hope you like it!

love as always Gina x x x
