CD Sunday - Tantalizing Turquoise

Well I think this is probably my last scheduled post before our return later this week. This weeks new challenge at CD Sunday is chosen by Wendy and it's Tantalizing Turquoise. I had several ideas for this one but in the end I went for Fairy Gemstones by Card Creations plus. A wonderful CD covering so many of the wonderful gemstones that are out there. My card is an A5 white card base, and I've used navy card for my matting. The backing paper is one that matches the main image, the topper was cut out and decoupaged before being mounted onto the card. The flowers were some that I had in my stash and are from Prima, I finished by adding some white leaves that were cut out using a crealies die. Please pop over to the blog and take a look at what the rest of the DT have made for your inspiration.



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