A Sad Good-Bye to C'est Magnifique...

A sad day that I thought would never come...my last post for C'est Magnifique.

I will never forget when I discovered C'M for the first time. My sister received a kit from them as a prize for a challenge site she'd participated in. I was SO jealous of what she got. It was after that that I joined their forums and started uploading to their gallery. And not long after, I received a phone call at my home from the owner, Leslie. From that phone call an amazing friendship was formed and an invite to a team for which I was so proud to design for resulted. I'm so grateful to have been a part of the C'M family for the last few years. So it's with a very heavy heart that I must now say my good-bye. C'est Magnifique has been sold to a great new owner and I'm sure that the sky is the limit for them. But my time has come and here we are.

I leave you today with a card that I created using the June MMM kit...

"Discover"
I started out with the rub-ons on my card base, applying them to the upper-left and lower-right. Next I used a craft knife to lightly spread gesso over everything, but wiping it away from the rub-ons.

The 13 Arts paint in this kit is smooth as butter! I used a mask and a craft knife to create the stenciled design and allowed it to dry on its own. Next I began applying the purple and blue Gelatos along the edges where the stenciled areas were. With a baby wipe, I began to blend them and then discovered that upon doing so, the painted stenciled areas began to blend as well. 

Finally, I added the Blue Fern Studios "Techno Rings" chipboard (cut in half) and the Maya Road wood hearts before finishing it all off with a flower cluster.

One more look at the complete MMM Kit:

Thank-you so much for allowing me to share with you all this time. 

C'est Magnifique is in great hands and I know there are so many exciting things to come! So stay tuned!

Your card is breathtaking, Erin! I'm sorry you won't be with CM any longer. But, as the saying goes, when one door closes, another one opens.
