Brook Bridge

Sharing a fabulous new design tonight from La Pashe, using their new CD Rom "Behind Closed Doors"
There are some amazing images on this cd!! i have already posted a couple of cards previously from this cd and just couldnt resist this one! i think it looks so peacful!

all the instructions are so easy to follow and available as a free download just  Here BONUS!! :)
La Pashe even sell the exact size gatefold cards just to make life that little bit easier! check them out over here
now i LOVE my cd crafting as you know, so with that in mind for the insert i used the image in my graphic programme- i use both MCS and Digital Designer but for this i used MCS, i copied the image 3 times chopped half, so i had a top half of the image and a bottom half, the top section i used the transparency tool, and popped the verse on top then i  put the two halves back together to get this effect :) then the tab with the sentiment on as you can see it matches the background perfectly, i simply placed the 3rd image over the top so it lined up, used a "digital punch" from MCS and punched out the section i needed, so when mat and layered and popped onto 3d foam pads when it was put in place it exactly lines up to the background!
perfect!! right as it is now 5 to 1in the morning ....oooops! and my alarm goes off at 6 for work i had better bid thee goodnight!
