The CD Sunday Challenge - Aged to Perfection


 Hi,
Its official its been the coldest spring for 50 years,  and today is just the same showers and sun,  and not very warm.   I wonder if summer will ever come, as for spring lets forget it and hope for a summer?
Today I bring you my card for the CD Sunday Challenge,  Aged to Perfection,  I found this image and thought it would be OK.  Thatched cottages were mainly built years ago and although they are very expensive to live in as the thatch needs attention and renewing about every 50 years so you could say they are aged with perfection.  Thatched cottages are very warm in winter, cool in summer and expensive to insure,  this cottage is a real chocolate picture.
The backing paper is used came from My craft Studio crafters essentials CD backgrounds,  I used a lovely piece of trellis which was sent to me from Sue (Aunty Sue),  thank you Sue the die cuts were lovely and the other die cuts of leaves were sent by Suzanne, thank you Suzanne, which I coloured with pro markers   I matched the rose buds and roses with the flowers on the image, and finished off the card with gold peel off's
                                                                         Hugs
                                                                    Margaret.
