The Sunday CD challenge - Chocolate, cream and one other colour


Gosh so far today no rain,  and the sun popped out,  it did not stay out very long so its still up there. Guess what more rain again tonight,  some more flooding is forecasted,  we are still in drought mode,   how can anyone say we need more rain here in Somerset when we have had so much.   Beats me.  We are officially the wettest part of the UK.
Mothers blanket is finished so I will take a picture before I take in to her for you all to see.

This weeks Sunday CD challenge is chocolate, cream and one other colour,  someone must have been thinking of chocolates,   or sweets, perhaps they have a sweet tooth.
Well thinking of chocolate and cream this image from Joanna Sheen's CD, the Royal Horticultural Society CD Collection and I used CD number one.
This image shouted at me cherries,  and I love Cherries so I used the one other colour as the colour of cherries,  a deep grape colour with matching ribbon, although it looks brown in the picture it is a deep grape colour,  matching the tulip flowers in the image and surround of the image.
I matted the image on embossed miri cream board,  cur some brown card and place it in the corners and then place a gold peel off to break up plain card.
The card used is shades of brown and cream card that came from stock.

I hope you are managing to stay dry and not flooded out.
Until we meet again take care.
