Crimson Cloud

Crimson cloud

Prize offered to 1 lucky winner is: 3 packs of die cuts.

My 'Anything Goes' sample for this Challenge is......

A Wedding Card using an image from Stamp Fairy

and a Wedding Memories Book...

My Top Tip for this challenge is...

...When making cards/gifts for a wedding ask to see the invitation - the colour scheme is usually given away here, you can then match your creation.
Here I was actually given the green ribbon off the invitation to use - I used it for the Wedding Memories Book but did not have enough for the card so kept the colours of that to black, white & silver.

My gorgeous image I have coloured with Promarkers (I treated myself to 4 new packs last week as they were in a sale! I'm now so happy I have more 'shades' of colours to pick from...still have to get quite a few more tho!!!)

Pop over to Top Tip Tuesday to see what amazing creations my Teamies have come up with - as well as some designers from 2 of our sponsors - and there's loads more Top Tips over there too :)
