Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine - Issue 167 Bonus papers

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How was your weekend? I was hoping for a quiet time having finished all the wedding makes. Unfortunately we have been let down with help getting things to the venue before the wedding and our fridge decided this was a good time to break. We also went to Portsmouth to a craft show and then to Aldershot for a celebration for my mother-in-laws 90th birthday. We are having another celebration in August. Not everyone can get together at the same time.

A little while ago I applied to be on the Reader's Design team for issue 167 of Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine I was emailed the papers and I sent my card off. This time my card wasn't one of the ones chosen to be printed. It is pretty so I thought I would share it anyway.

It is very appropriate that the papers were wedding themed. I loved the swans. I used a tattered lace die to make the frames. For the background I used one of the papers and then over the top like confetti I put different sized hearts cut from one of the other papers. 

I used pink card to enhance the image. 

I did the same with the sentiment. 

My stash from the Portsmouth Craft show I did try to reign my self in a bit. 

Have a great week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
