CD Sunday - Tassel Time

Sunday came around very quickly this week, and it time for the weekly challenge over at the CD Sunday blog. This week the challenge is Tassels. I had a bit of a problem with this as I did not have any Tassels. But I like a challenge, so I have made my own, using the Glitter Girls bow shaper.

I am in the middle of making some birthday cards that a friend has ask me for, (I'll save them for later in the week) and this topper was left over. So I decided to use it for this card. It's from Joanna Sheen's Enchanted CD. The base card is a piece of gold centura pearl, folded in half, and the backing paper put straight onto it. The backing paper is the matching one for this image. I added corners made with a Marianne Die, mounted the topper onto some matching gold centura pearl card. I used a machine embroidery thread to make the tassel, and placed at the bottom of the topper, just adding a small flower at the top of the tassel. I then just added some gems to finish.

Thanks for looking, your kind comments are appreciated.

What a gorgeous card Sue. I don't remember this image on the Cd - why I don't know as she is stunning. I love what you have done with your gems as the cord for your tassel.
Thank you for joining us at Cd Sunday.
