Playing Along at The Library!


I have been wanting to play along at a fab new challenge - The Library Challenge - which is a great idea put together by the lovely Marina.  Each challenge is based on a book and you can make a card inspired by the cover, title or story.  The first challenge features one of my fave books - Pride and Prejudice.

Here is my card:

I went with both the story and the cover image which contains peacocks for my inspiration.  Also I always thing that peacocks are very proud too!  This card features another of my stencils that are available in my Folksy store.  As it is a stencil it is easy to turn it over to get the mirror image!  

Here is the book cover - the challenge is open until 10 March:

Image result for pride and prejudice cover

While I had my peacock stencil out, I made another card:

Here I used glue through the stencil to create a gilded image and combined it with a gold embossed sentiment from Papertrey.  I think this looks quite elegant against the rich blue!  I shall link this card up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes and at Addicted to Stamps which is also Anything Goes.

I hope you like my cards and this new stencil:

Thanks as always for stopping by :)
