You and Me

The current challenge over at the CD Sunday Challenge Blog is 'A La Mode', well that was my first challenge to find out what it meant.  I used my good friend 'Google' and came up with a few meanings:
  • in the current style or fashion
  • current trend
  • a style
Well I chose to use 'current trend' as my interpretation of the challenge and the current trend in blog land would appear to be Valentines Cards and Cute and Cuddly at the moment so this is my card for the challenge:

I have made this card for my son to give his girlfriend on Valentine's Day, they are only sixteen but seem to be so in love - those were the days.

The papers and image are from the Crafter's Companion Popcorn Platinum CD and I just couldn't help choosing the decoupage version, how unusual I hear you say!  The pink card stock was some that I bought from Joanna Sheen some time ago, I don't think she stocks it any more which is a shame.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of the card, my son wanted it left blank so that he could write his own words - how romantic.

Card Recipe

Image: Crafter's Companion - Popcorn Platinum
Papers;  Crafter's Companion - Popcorn Platinum
Tools:  Spellbinders - Ribbon Banners, Sizzix - Heart Die, Marianne Creatables - LR0108, Darice - Embossing Folder
Embellishments:  Flowers and gems from stash

I do hope my interpretation of  'A La Mode' of OK for the challenge.

Hi Pauline. I had to google it too! Your card is really lovely, your son's girlfriend is going to feel extra special when she receives this beautiful card.

It's nice to know someone who shares my love of decoupage. I keep trying other techniques but this still remains my favourite.
