Challenge 3 - Monogram

I had fun with this one!!  I got to try my hand at quilling and thoroughly enjoyed it!

I sealed all the quilled bits with ModPodge which really helps to keep everything in place.

The rose paper was an advertisement in a magazine.  I added the chipboard 'love', butterfly and pearls and washi tape calender.

Card Challenge Begins Again! Challenge 1 - 2014

Our family card challenge took a break over the festive season but has begun again!

For those new to my blog, the family card challenge came about because two of my sisters in law also enjoy making cards and we thought it would be fun to start a weekly card making challenge.  Last year another sister in law joined the group.  Only one sister in law has a blog, you can see her beautiful work here.

So back to the first challenge of the year.  Sister in law M sent us each this lovely paper

And this ribbon

And what did I do with it??

Can you tell that I'm ready for a holiday?!!
