CD Sunday - Layer It Up

It seems so long since I last had anything to post on here, but I'm glad to say that things are at long last beginning to get back to normal. Last week I was asked if I would be able to make a 40th Birthday card, I finished it this morning and have just noticed that it fits right in with the challenge over on the CD Sunday blog this week, which is Layer it up. For this card I've used Debbi Moore's Art Deco Rome CD. The backing paper is a collage of maps, letters and pictures all to do with Rome, matted onto some gold mirri card. The topper is from the decoupage section, put together with silicone gel. Ive added a couple of corners in gold mirri card and some gold coloured ribbon from my stash. The rosette bow was tied using the Glitter Girls bow maker. Finally I've added some flowers in a matching colours and popped some flat backed pearls in the middle of them.

As we have been so busy the last month or so, Hubby and I had a couple of days out last week, we started at the NEC, on Thursday, for the Hobbycrafts show, where I bought a Silhouette Cameo, as well as lots of other goodies. Then we stayed the night in a nice little Hotel just outside of Stratford On Avon, so Friday saw us wandering around the Town and market, before taking the slow route (non Motorway) home later in the day.

Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
