Pendant Park

Hi everyone - I guess I WAS in the mood to whip something up quickly after all! One of my favourite sets in the new Autumn Mini is this simply gorgeous Pendant Park. I knew I'd want it for the park bench image alone - my Dad calls me squirrel, so I couldn't resist! This set is just as much fun to play with as I thought it would be and it makes for a GREAT masculine card!

The colour combo I whipped up for this one is Soft Suede (my first time playing with it and I'm in love already!) Bashful Blue and Old Olive. I've used the SCS SC276 sketch. I found the perfect paper in a REALLY old DP pack - Holiday Thyme. This was the first double sided SU! paper I bought, I still love it. The Old Olive DP is from the new Cottage Garden pack.

I think pleating is the perfect way to add ribbon to a more masculine card - it really finished this one off.

Here's a shot of how I finished that tree panel. I know it looks labor intensive, but when you do as much cutting as I do, you get pretty speedy with the paper snips!

No photo of the inside yet as it's not finished - I was losing the light and had to get this photographed. I hope you love this set as much as I do!
