Another first magazine commission


I was delighted to be asked to design for Papercrafter magazine and this is my first commission for them. They sent me the Crafter's Companion bow die from the Downton Abbey range to use as the focus on my card. I die cut the bow, cutting two sets of the tails, from Centura Pearl card, and mounted it onto plain card.

I teamed it with papers from The Range, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and some lovely flowers from I am Roses.

Challenges
Simon Says anything goes 
Creative Knockouts anything goes 
Simon Says Monday add some texture
Bunny Zoe Summer florals
Fussy and Fancy a walk in the garden

Should be fine here today so we are planning on spending the morning gardening. Looking forward to visiting friends this evening for a BBQ.

A very pretty card Marianne and congrats on another magazine commission too. Lovely die cut bow and those papers are fabulous. I managed to get a ton of different pads a few weeks back, they were too good of a bargain to pass up.
