CD Sunday - Ring A Roses

The challenge over on the CD Sunday blog this week is Ring A Roses, so as I was making my FIL's card to give to MIL on their Anniversary, I decided to combine the two. I've used Rob Addams, Roses For All Occasions CD, and made an 8 x 8 card. Some of the flowers in this basket are very deep in colour, so I picked a deep pink mirri card to use for the matting, the backing paper is also from the CD and although you can't see it very well is covered with lovely pink roses. The decoupage is quite deep and printed of over 3 sheets, I put it together with silicone gel, then mounted onto the card with foam pads. I tied a bow and added to the side of the card before I stuck the bottom layer onto the card. I've just realised that I have taken the photo before I added the sentiment, which said, To My Wonderful Wife On Our Wedding Anniversary.

Thank you for taking the time to look.

Gorgeous card for your MIL Sue ! I'm sure in 'real' it's even more beautiful when you see the full effect of the decoupage. Have fun with your new goodies from the show, I have to wait until October to attend one that is close. Have a great week ! Shirley x

This is gorgeous and must have taken ages to make all those layers - I'm sure it will be much appreciated.

A really lovely card. I like the background that the roses are on, it really makes the roses stand out.
