The Sunday CD Challenge - Delicious Damask

 Hi,


Today I am bring you my challenge card for this weeks Sunday CD challenge - Delicious Damask.


I don't think my mojo working very well this week,  I have injured my knee and I saw the GP this morning, she wants an x ray and a blood test.  I knelt down to do something for Mother and whatever I did the knee suddenly hurt,  it felt better after a few days,  then I had to get back into the cupboard for her and this time the knee really hurt and has done ever since.  Its a bit swollen and I am limping  I cant kneel or bend the knee when bending down,  whatever I had done,  it hurts.


Anyway back to the card,   this is my favourite image from the Joanna Sheen's CD Pamela West,


 I used my damask backing paper which I brought sometime ago,   I have it in several colours and I used the pale green sheet,   matted the image on green miri board.  I used gold butterflies on parchment paper and embossed them and cut them out and placed a large one in one corner and the little one in the flowers. 


The flowers are some I already had and the ribbon is shaded pink and blue,  which matches the flowers in the image.  I finished the card off with gold corner peel off's



We are going to have heavy rain again tonight and all day tomorrow, Friday and Saturday,   it is already very dark and feeling very heavy,  I hope we don't get a thunder storm,  as I have a real fear of them.   I really do hate thunder storms,  its not just the lightening but the thunder as well,  in fact the whole thing.   We went to Zante and the first night it was a bad storm there was Vernon trying to sleep and I had hold of him,  every time the lightening lit up the room or a bang I was gripping him,  he got fed up and told me to hold onto the bed he wanted to sleep.  I quite often end up with a headache before they start. 
 I did manage to get a load of washing dry today and Vernon did cut the lawn.  Two or three fine days and then back to rain,  I hope the sun with puts its hat on soon again,   not much chance before the weekend.   I hope the weather improves as I am doing my usual craft table on Saturday.
I hope you are all keeping well and until we meet again Take Care
                           Hugs
                       Margaret

  10. Your card is lovely Margaret. A beautiful image and a great design. I found you had used the link for last weeks card this week. Sorry my comment is a bit late. Last time I tried Mr Blogger wouldn't let me click on the 'home' page so I could find your entry to this weeks CD Sunday challenge. Thank you for joining us again.
