For Someone Special

Goodmorning Sunday people. I'm scheduling this post as we've gone to the Troodos Mountains for the weekend. To celebrate my OH's special birthday. Thought it might be good to go to the Troodos for a quiet weekend and we haven't been up there for a while.

'For Someone Special' is Beryl's choice for Team A's challenge this week at CD Sunday.

It didn't take me long to know who I would be making this card for. My oldest Granddaughter will be 16 soon. She's grown up to be a delightful young lady. So I went for an image of some very big girls shoes. The CD I'm sure you'll know is Katy Sue's Fabulous Shoes. I was spoilt for choice with all the different colours to choose from. In fact I made two but I felt the brighter colours of the second were more for a young, trendy lady so I went with those.

It's a box card and the template for it is also on the CD. I framed the turquoise card box with a lacey edging using a Martha Stewart Around the Page punch. The image was double mounted on red card stock which matched the red in the shoes perfectly. I put some Ranger gold liquid pearls around the edge and also around the trim of the shoe. I added two more tiny butterflies which were also on the CD and highlighted them and the flowers with liquid pearls. The tiny flowers in the top two corners were punched from two tiny punches that I got in a pack from Lidl's. For the three pansies, bottom right, I used the Punch and Stamp Set from Tonic. I used red card for one and turquoise vellum for the other two. Gold liquid pearls was added to the centres of all the flowers. Finally I punched out the scalloped circle in red card and added the gold number 16. I will be adding a greeting and her name nearer the date which isn't for a little while yet. But the box is made for it too so it'll safely stay in there until needed.
Now it's your turn. I'm sure like me you have  lots of Special people in your life to make that Special card for. So pop over to CD Sunday and see what the rest of the team have made to inspire you. You won't be disappointed. Have fun and don't forget to use a CD for your entry to be a chance of a lovely gift.
