CD Sunday - P is for..........

I love Christmas and could have gone for lots of Christmas themed P's but changed my mind and went with P is for Pink for the CD Sunday challenge this fortnight.

I've made a card that could be used for an engagement, wedding or anniversary. The card base is from a very old (2007?) QVC kit by Carol Wilson. It already had the rose bud background, white embossed frame and aperture. I printed onto vellum using a paper from a Creative Crafting World CD - Perfect Papercrafting Companions, disc 2. It's a linen effect paper which can be seen clearly in real life but doesn't show so well on the photo. I've attached the vellum with pink pearl brads after gluing a silhouette die cut behind the aperture - the die is from Tonic. 

Inside the card I glued a heart shaped embellishment (also from the kit) that was positioned so that it could be seen through the vellum when the card is closed.


I made this card for an elderly couple who live in one of the care homes I work for. December 4th would have been their 71st wedding anniversary. Sadly the wife died a couple of days ago - they were such a devoted couple. 

The CD Sunday challenge runs until Saturday 29th November so still plenty of time to get your cards made and entered.
