Couture Collection blog hop

I am very excited today to join Denise in this blog hop, using the card makers pack from the stunning Couture Collection! 
If you like what you see they are available from Megs Garden just click here to see the range
If you have arrived here from the fabulous Janiel's blog then you are on the right track, if not then head on over to Meg's Garden and start from there :)
I loved these gorgeous papers so much I made 2 cards to show you today. I thought they would be perfect for gate fold cards because you can see the fabulous details on the papers when you open the cards up
 Here is a close up of the left panel and the right one when the card is open (I know it's not right to have favorites, hehehe, but I think this piece was my favorite of the collection, it was definitely the first one I used!) Don't you just love that victorian lady down the bottom.

 And again the inside panel. After I made this card I thought that this would be a lovely paper for a christmas card with the deep, rich reds and greens... I only wish I had thought of it first, bahahah!! (sorry about the fuzzies, not sure what happened there)

We have some Blog candy on offer as well
Just leave a comment on each stop of the hop to be in the running to win!!
The next stop on your hop is the wonderful Jane!
thanks to every one for joining in on the fun, I am sure you will all fall in love with these papers like I have :)
