CD Sunday - Aged To Perfection

This week has flown by and it's time for a new challenge over at CD Sunday. This week it's Sue B's choice, and she's gone with Aged To Perfection. The rest of the design team have been hard at work and there are some great inspiration over on the blog, do pop over and have a look. For my card this week I've used La Pashe, Best of 2012, and this happy couple on the London to Brighton run. It's the card that I made for Mother-in-law to give to Father-in-law on their 64th Anniversary. He always had a passion for cars up until he lost most of his sight and had to give up driving 12 years ago. On cold nights he would pop out to the garage a put a blanket over the engine. The card base is 8x8 and I matted the backing paper onto some black card, the topper and sentiment were matted onto first black and then silver mirri card. I used the sprocket set from spellbinders and cut out lots of cogs which I've added as embellishments.



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

  4. A brilliant fun card - the cogs on the red background really pops. I love the story of putting the blanket over the car in cold weather. We do do the strangest things sometimes don't we?

  8. A super card Sue and the cogs on the red background work so well. I had an Uncle, who after putting his car in the garage after it had benn in the rain, spent a few hours wiping it down. Such dedication and it seems like your FIL was the same.
