cd sunday challenge - delicious damask

Happy sunny Sunday everyone

It is so nice to see a little bit of sun today - so I hope all the Dad's are having a good time on this Father's day.

The challenge over at CD Sunday today is "Delicious Damask", so here is my card ..........

The background paper is from MCS Paper Flower Expert & the image is from MCS Deco Follies.

I printed 2 of the image & cut the face away from the second image leaving just the front part of the hat & her shoulder, in order to produce a 3-d effect.  I then  punched the scalloped oval & placed the lady on it slightly overlapping the oval.  Some pale blue organza ribbon was run down the side & 2 of those delicate flowers added towards the base.  A few pearls added around the oval & to the corners completes the card.

You can just see a group of pearls between the flowers.  I had to put those there as I caught a double-sided pad with my scissors & it flicked over onto the card.  I gently tried to lift it but it would have torn the background paper.  I didn't have another flower to put there - so I covered it with pearls.

If you haven't found CD Sunday challenge yet - pop over & take a look.  Thank you for popping - plee leave a comment to say you have visited.  Thank you.,

Lovely card and nice to see you again. I am rediscovering MCS as I load all the discs on my new computer. I keep having to have a look to make sure it is all there. Daft.

Such a pretty card and your accident looks like it was meant to be there so you didn't need to have told us. I like the fact that when we do something wrong we usually find a way to sort it out.
Thank you for joining us again at CD Sunday.
