The CD Sunday Challenge - Go Green


Hi,
I don't know about you but the weather here cannot make up its mind, one minute the sun is shining and its warm then the sun disappears and its dull, another day its cold, grey and windy.   I hope summer wont be long because I am fed up with this winter, as for spring well even the flowers and plants in my garden are confused   and if they are confused I sure am.   I was hoping to take some pictures of my garden plants that are out in flower,  but the weather and sun are not co-operating. When  I can get a good picture I will out there with the camera.  watch this space as they say.
This weeks card for the CD Sunday Challenge is go green,  I was rather confused  did it mean a green card or a recycled element.........
Well this is my card,   on the computer the image and papers looked green, when I printed them out they were rather gold colour, although the image does have some green in it.  Its from the Joanna Sheens Royal Horticultural Society CD,  and being Chelsea Flower Show this week I thought it would be nice to use this CD.  I used the image and matching papers,  3d the image,  matted onto green miri board   green line and corner peel off's   and the ribbon is recycled - I brought a white top in a well known store,   and they had these flaming white ribbon straps on the shoulders inside,  well they came off straight away.  I hate shoulder pads and bits of ribbon hanging inside,   it might be fine to hang the tops up with but I don't want it, so I re-use all the ribbon on cards etc. has they say waste not, want not.

I hope where ever you are the sun is shining and until we meet again take care.
                          Hugs
                      Margaret

  2. Hi Margaret, you have chosen well as your card is beautiful. I love the way you have placed the images which are stunning. This is one CD I don't have and have regretted it, sadly I don'think Joanna has it anymore.
    Thanks for joining us again this week.

  4. A beautifully layered card Margaret, and perfect for the challenge. Printers can be quite contrary sometimes, printing what colours they want. This looks like an olive green to me more than gold. Thanks for joining in at CD Sunday this week.

  6. A beautiful card Margaret. I haven't bought this CD. I am lucky enough to live only 15/20 mins away from RHS Wisley so I can look at all these plants in real life. I love the tiered effect.
    Thank you for joining in with us.
