The CD Sunday Challenge - Kimono

I had a wonderful surprise this morning in the post,  I was not expecting anything, and then this packet arrived,  it was from Jocelyn for the CD Sunday Design Team last week's card had won first.  Thank you I will enjoy the CD rom I have not seen this one so will look forward to finding out what's on it.
Now onto this weeks card the challenge this week is Kimono.  I found this backing paper on the Joanna Sheens CD The Royal Horticultural Society CD collection.  I thought it looked Japanese,  it was not my original thoughts for the card.  I  used some white peel offs I put the round one on some purple miri board and used the corner peel offs to make a square,   the lady was also a peel off which I put on purple miri board and cut around her leaving a narrow border.  Then using 3d glue placed her on the card raising her up from the card.  Put some bamboo strips and border peel offs around the sides.  Added a white ribbon down the side.
I also want to thank Wendy I received the most gorgeous tatted pendant which she gave away on her blog,   I will post the pendant another day soon.
Until we meet again Take care.

  4. Hi Margaret. I love your peel offs. It is great to see them being used again. They seem to have been forgotten completely in the rush to be different. They still can be so useful and effective. They were the beginning of card making for most of us.
    Thank you for another of your great creations and for joining in with us.
