The Sunday CD Challenge - ovals


Today I am bring you my card for The Sunday CD Challenge - ovals I used the image from the Art Deco Timeless Keepsake CD, the oval background and backing paper also came from the same group of images for this art deco lady. Unfortunately the camera has not picked up the background as it was very pale, I added flower from my stock and the ribbon , and finished off the card with gold peel offs. Although this is only my third card for the challenge, I do enjoy doing them.

I hope you like this card and I look forward to seeing you again in blog land, as I have some new things coming in the next week.

I have nearly finished the booties, last night we had family over so I did not get a lot of tatting done, just one bootie to finish. Michelle left a comment saying it takes her 9 hours to do a booties, I worked it out and yes it does take me about the same time.

I also had my friend over yesterday afternoon she I liked the basket and it will soon be finished, I will bring you the photos of it soon. I was very pleased about that after the hours of hand sewing.

Until we meet again take care

  10. Your cards are fabulous!

    I'm glad to see you use the gold/silver peel-offs! For whatever reason, the craft stores don't carry them! The only place I could find them was at Pat Catan's (Ohio and PA); and one time they had a big sale with tons of them in boxes on the floor, meaning they were getting rid of them! I practically had to sit on the floor to sort through them and tried to buy as many as I could! Why don't people know the value of these? Even a local stamp/card supply store doesn't carry them!

    I gave up making birthday/anniversary greeting cards. I buy commercial cards (they have very decent ones at the dollar stores for 50 cents!) but I take a good deal of time to decorate the envelope. I like the way you made a shadow-box 'envelope' for one of your keepsake cards! Great idea!

    Your site has led me to other fantastic card making sites! So much talent out there!

  11. beautiful card margaret, i love the colours and the layout.
    im so looking forward to seeing the bootee's too!
