Today is July, 15th and time for the CLP Midway Reminder. If you haven’t created something yet following Chelsea’s beautiful sketch, you still have got two weeks to get your entry in. This is the gorgeous sketch for you to play with;
…and this is my card:
Gosh making this card was a real challenge for me. It’s a Thank You card for Sandy, who helped me to take many of the product photos for Live & Love Crafts. Because of this, I wanted to include as many products photographed as possible on the card. All the papers are from Maja Design’s Vintage Summer Basics collection and the brown one in the middle, the backside of Memories, we used as background when photographing several of the trims. The other paper used is 1910.
Sandy actually took pictures of a lot of different trims, so it was a bit difficult to choose which one to use for this card, but I finally settled upon Maya Road’s Vintage Scallop Lace Trim, which both DT Members and Customers alike have been lyric about.
The adorable Love Hanger is also from Maya Road and so is the Vintage Trinket Pearl Center and the Vintage Hat Pin. Chose the brown one as the Colour is called Dark Chocolate” and Sandy is a Chocaholic. 🙂 The pearls are from Melissa Frances.
Sandy also took the most amazing pictures of the Roses with Glass Pearls and the Hortensias from Kort og Godt, so including those on the card was a must.The roses and tulips are from WOC. I don’t have nearly as many different flowers as I’d like to have for Live & Love Crafts, so I’ll be looking to add some more in the coming months…
Finally; Sandy, being a photographer, I of course had to use some of the Tim Holtz film strip ribbon.You might be wondering about the image choice; “Koala Hugs“…well some years ago Sandy travelled to Aussieland and had a picture taken of her and the most adorable little Koala…actually it was clinging on to her just like this Koala does to Tilda! 🙂
