"More gorgeous cards from Marie Chillmaid using her Recipe Cards for inspiration
Love how you have used one of the Technique cards to create the Candi petal for the centres of the flowers on Sweet Meadow papers.
Lovely card for Valentines, Wedding Anniversary or the birth of a new baby
I'm off to find my Kraft foiled papers, this colour combination is fabulous with those flowers.
Thank you Marie for sharing your fabulous ideas with us.

"Inspiration by Marie Chillmaid
This is what Marie had to say ...
The inspiration from your fab TSV and economics has really made me go through all my piles of craftroom 'stash'.
Have found lots of lovely CWC treasures so have been making like mad, attaching a few pics for you! Some just have candy flowers and have been using candi on hatpins too, makes a lovely addition with some pearls etc.Marie so glad you were inspired by the card designs from the Recipe Cards and that you could look through your crafting stash and use some of the bits and pieces you already have to create these beautiful cards.
More ideas from Marie coming soon!
