Challenge #38 Sandy's Choice - Blue

Hi LLC Lovers,
As always; time's flying and it's time to turn the page to August and a brand new challenge!
But before we do, many thanks to the crafty folks who joined us for our "Christmas in July" challenge. That's 70 of you who have already made a start on your Christmas cards and I'm sure you'll all be happy about that when the festive Season is approaching. :-)

Now, our  randomly drawn winner is...

No 52 is Lozzy, who submitted this lovely card:

Congratulationss; please drop me, Sandy, an e-mail . - See more at: http://liveandlovecrafts.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/challenge-37-christmas-in-july.html#sthash.w9jMShVn.dpuf

Congrats; please contact me, Sandy, to claim your prize. 

If you are a follower of this blog, you'll surely have noticed the DT members' preference for pink cards and projects. :-) Though I share this love for pink, my favourite colour when it comes to crafting is actually blue...
We've had quite a few pink challenges and also purple, but never blue, so that's what I've chosen for this month's challenge!

Happy 60th Wedding Anniversary

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all enjoyed the weekend.

A commissioned project today and I have again used beautiful papers from Pion Design's Vintage Wedding collection.  The MDF Triptech is made by Dutch Doobadoo, all links at the bottom of the post as usual.

I have added flowers, seam binding, pearl string, tulle, dutch doobadoo softboard roof tiles, mini bark heart, damansk straws, Ranger film trip, gorgeous lace and a resin frame.  I think that's everything on this side, lol.

 

The photo's are of the Customer's Mum and Dad either side and of their wedding 60 years ago in the centre.  Congratulations!

This is the back of the Triptech.



Not easy to photograph to capture the elegance and I know these photo's don't do it the justice it deserves.


I have used the stripes and dots stencil with structure paste on the paper but it looks like the flowers are growing up a trellis :)


I have used a crotcheted heart in the centre panel, the text and numbers for the date is from the border sheet.





Hugs Tracy x
