Sunday Challenge #13

Its my turn to set the challenge this week,excuse me if Im late looking at your cards, but Im off to West Looe on Monday,so hope you have fun while I'm away!!
The challenge is
Aperture....Ribbon & Doodles....
Ofcourse it involves using a download from Charmed Cards,then it can be one or more Apertures,one or more ribbons and hand drawn Doodles.
There are some fine examples this week, all using the NEW Love & Marriage download,Louise has shown again, she is an absolute inspiration with her new set of images!!!
I used a Keepsake board to make the card, cutting out the gate and back aperture. Doodling the swirls on the front of the gate.
The card is held with a plaque
Which can be used on a bottle of wine.

Inside the card I used the image from Love & Marriage and attached using a cropadile & eyelets through which I used the ribbon.
The flowers are peeloffs


Well what could we expect other that perfection from Louise!

This is a real labour of love,She used the wedding car images, which are in reverse of each other,designed to do exactly what Louise has done

One on the front
One on the back!! Adding the ribbon with eyelets and in the corners lovely heart & swirl doodles
Has made two wonderful cards!! Using images from Love & Marriage

On Karens first amazing card she used a:-Oval Aperture; Spotted organza ribbon, Doodled (scribbled) border around main card and dots around the oval.
Dottie & George in Love image (Love & Marriage collection) This umberella image is wonderful, even the puddle has their reflection and Karen used :-Square aperture - Basic Grey Urban Couture Velvet Rick Rack - Doodled heart border
Puddle Love Dottie & George image (Love & Marriage collection)
I hope you enjoy trying the challenge, dont forget to leave a link for your card so we can have alook. Goodluck and have a great week.
