CD Sunday - Transportation

Can you believe it's August already? I'm finding it hard. As it's the first Sunday of the month, over at CD Sunday we have a sponsor, and this month it's Linby, who regularly takes part in our challenges. She has very kindly donated Debbi Moores Mechanical CD. Which leads us onto the theme this week, which is Transportation, and what better Guest Designer to have for the month of August than Linby herself. For my card I've used Joanna Sheen's Times Gone By, and this lovely image of a steam locomotive. I started by taking an A4 piece of brown card stock and folded it down to make the back of it square. With some rust card for matting, I printed off the backing paper and divided it between the front and inside (including the bit that shows). The topper is decoupaged, and the sentiment added from the same sheet as the decoupage came from. I added a verse to the inside of the card and some spellbinders cogs to embellish down the side of the card. Do pop over to the challenge blog and see the lovely card that my teamies have made as inspiration for you.

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