CD Sunday - Kimono

What a difference a week makes, last week was glorious sunshine and this week rain. I hope that the lovely weather comes back soon. It's time for a new challenge on the CD Sunday challenge blog, this week it's Caz's turn to choose the theme, and she's chosen Kimono. We also still have Wynn as our Guest DT this week, I'm sure that her weather in Cyprus is better than ours. My card this week is a large 10x7 card base, and I've used Debbi Moore's Oriental CD for my card. The backing paper was printed form the CD and mounted onto some gold pearlised card, I then added some black and red ribbon around the centre of the card and put it on the card base. I printed off the decoupage sheet and cut the pieces out then put them together using glue gel, I then mounted onto the card with some foam tape. The sentiment is on the CD as well and I used this instead of a more traditional sentiment. The flowers were cut from a crealie die and I added black flat backed pearls to the centres. I then finished with some gold swirls cut with a Marianne die. Do pop over to the challenge blog and check out what the rest of the team have been making to inspire you this week.

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

Sue I'm sure you'd think it was warmer here but to me it is cloudy and cool but then I do live on high ground away from tourist area... where I'm sure they'll be much warmer.

I love the colours on your card. The red and gold look really elegant. Your oriental sentiment is just perfect for this card.
