The Library Challenge - Brideshead Revisited.

The new Library Challenge  is Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh. I recently listened to the audiobook of this, I did quite enjoy it even though I found the characters ( and, I suspect,  would have found the author) pretty awful.

My first card is a wedding card - it meets the challenge in two ways - first , the car on the cover, and secondly, the title - there's a bride's head on my card! (haha)

The car and couple are Stampin Up, the sentiment and banner are Avery Elle and I used a stencil for the road.

I'd like to enter:
Watercooler Wednesday  occasions
QKR Stampede anything goes
Creatalicious add sentiment

In the book, one of the main characters has a gimmick to help him stand out at Oxford - he carries around a teddy bear called Aloysius! 

For my new baby card. I used a free e-cutting file by Bird plus stamped sentiments. 

I'd love it if you popped over to The Library and entered the challenge. 

I'd like to enter:
As you like it  for baby cards, I choose pink right now as I know of two baby girls on their way!
Alphabet Challenge d for dots 
Allsorts in the pink 

Brideshead Revisited, Evelyn Waugh. File this under "gorgeous novel." Perfect pick for Downton fans.

Marina thanks so much for playing along with the "Any Occasions" Challenge at Watercooler Wednesday this week and sharing your wonderful wedding card. I chuckled over your comment about Brideshead revisited and your card actually having a "brideshead". That was one of the great wedding stamp sets SU had. Loved it.

I’m not familiar with this book but from what little you told here I might check it out. Fresh colors for your modern romantic design. And cute card for a little one too.
