CD Sunday Challenge Special - Birthday Celebrations

As special celebrations the CD Sunday Challenge is to BACK LINK to our favourite card that we have made for the challenges, Well that was one of the hardest things I have had to do in a long time,  the brain cells have been working overtime. Although I have not been doing the challenges for the whole six years I still had a lot of cards to look though.   In the end it came down to two cards and tossing a coin we decided on this card. It was made for the Coffee, Peach and Cream challenge in November 2014.   I used the Joanna Sheens CD Patience Strong. Down beside each image there are some of the flowers which I used to 3D the image, and then I put glitter on the flowers,  I matted the image on peach and cream card and used the backing paper from the image,  The ribbon down the side is cream with a narrow coffee ribbon and I made a bow with both ribbons,  I added coffee ribbon to the spray of flowers.  and peach gems at the top and bottom.   I finished off the card with gold peel off of Happy Birthday.
Here is a link to the original post with this card from November 2014
You may ask why is this my favourite card,   I just like the colouring and the image,   peach is one of my favourite colours, and out of all the cards I have made for the CD Sunday Challenge this is one of them that stands out the most.
These ladies come up with some great challenges and I hope they keep going for another six years,  I really don't know how they do it and think of something new every fortnight
I hope you like it too.


  1. Thank you Margaret for your nice comments. We do try to choose something different each time but not so different that no one wants to enter. This is a lovely card you have chosen and I can understand your difficulty as all your entries have been so good. I know you like peach - I have seen you wearing peach when we have met at Bristol and it suits you. Thank you for joining in with us.

  7. Very pretty card - concept, visualisation & execution.
    Wonder why I have to always type out my comment twice on some blogs such as yours -- midways through the typing, the page reloads - unerringly :-(

  8. A beautiful card Margaret. The flower detail is wonderfu. Lynn

  9. This is a peach of a card. I'm enjoying a trip down memory lane seeing all the lovely cards and it is nice to hear why everyone chooses a particular card as their favourite. Thank you for sharing this pretty card with us again.
