Victorian Beauties

Good Sunday Morning to you. I hope the weather in your part of the world is better than it has been here this last week. Yes we've had rain and low threatening clouds. Very unusual for this time of the year. More rain than we had in the Winter. Which was very dry. We do need the rain but I hope this is it now til the Winter......fingers crossed.

Over at CD Sunday it is my turn to choose the challenge. I've gone with Victorian Beauties. I had this lovely CD sent from a dear friend in the UK. Vintage Treasures by Krafty Hands. There are so many fab images on this CD that it was hard to choose which one to use.

I've also chosen an new shape for me. One of my crafty friends here in Cyprus introduced it to us at one of our craft sessions. The top, where the image is, is supposed to spin around but I opted to keep it static. It seemed more appropriate for this card.

The main card is A4 white card stock folded then shaped to a peak at the top. The green DP is also from the same CD. A square of pale green card stock was adhered to the point at top and another brown square was twisted and placed on top with 3D pads. The image and shaped topper are both from the CD.
I've used gold peel offs for the corners and edging. A gold peel off strip across the centre bottom and a further image was placed at an angle. Finally I added the green bow, which I found in my stash and it just happened to be the perfect lucky was that.
Now I know you'll have a Vintage CD tucked away somewhere gathering dust. So dust it off and join in the challenge. I've a little something for the winner waiting to wing it's way from Cyprus to you.
Now pop over to CD Sunday and see what the rest of team A have created for you to drool over this week.

  5. I can see why you kept the top static Wynn but what a great design for a fun card. It's a beautiful image and a great card shape - and I am so envious of the neatness of your perfect bow.

    1. Thanks bow....It took no doing.....I think if the ribbon is heavy but soft (if you know what I mean) i.e good quality, it just falls right. Sometimes they take ages but this just fell right xx
