CD Sunday challenge - Beautiful Blue

The challenge this week over at CD Sunday Challenge Blog is Beautiful Blue.

For my card I used a My Craft Studio CD from the 3rd Anniversary Set - called Nursery Rhymes Volume 1. It contains images & papers to do with the days of the week - "Mondays child is fair of face" etc.  I chose Thursdays Child as it had blue backgrounds & images.

I trimmed the background paper to leave a small border all round. Then I  reduced the size of the topper a little & printed it out along with a separate image of the boy.  I made him a little bigger than the one in the topper.  I placed him at bottom right of the card on sticky pads to try to give more of an impression of the journey - the far to go. Some twine & small buttons just to finish it off.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave a comment - it is always nice to hear what others think of my work, good or bad.

I love this - especially as I used them all last week. Great minds and all that. Nice to see a card made with the image (I did Atc's).
