Cloud9 September Blog Hop


Welcome to this month's Cloud9 Blog Hop.



You by now have seen the inspirational picture from Cloud9 website.
Here it for you.



I would love to dine there and chat with a group of friends or with family. Beautiful picture. I love the bird cages that are hanging from the tree. But to be honest, this was a very tough one for me. There are so many element that I love on the picture but translating them in a card was so difficult. I would have made atleast three card fronts and binned them because I was not happy with them.
 Finally, I am pleased with this one.

I like that I have included elements that I liked from the picture on my card. Looking at it now, I can see I could have added or taken away few things but I on the whole I am happy with this card.

Check out Cloud9 blog for more inspirations from the rest of the Design Team and from Jill Norwood our Guest Design Team Member for this month.
