CD Sunday - Trees and Shrubs

It's time once more for the CD Sunday challenge and this week it's Trees and Shrubs. An ideal chance for me to get ahead and make a card for later, as in June I shall be away for the whole month. Hubby and I along with a friend are going to be travelling in America. I have several Birthdays in the family that will require cards while we are away, along with this one which I've made for my FIL to give to MIL. It was a good excuse to get out the Thomas Kinkade CD and use one of the gorgeous images from this, plenty of trees, shrubs and colourful flowers. I've made an 8 x 8 card base, and used the largest topper on the sheet for this one, the backing paper was from the florals 2 section. I've used some pink centura pearl card for the matting, and some ribbon and flowers from my stash.

Thank you for taking the time to look.

A beautiful card. These images are always lovely and I especially like the way you have pulled the colour from the image out into your card with the mats and layers, ribbons and embellies.

Hi Sue. I have to be honest and put my hand up and say that I am not a fan of the work of Thomas Kincade. Having said that though you have made a beautiful card with this image.
Thank you for joining in with us at Cd Sunday.
