Pearls and Lace

This is my second challenge as Guest Designer at CD Sunday. The challenge for the next two weeks is Pearls and Lace, you must use something from a CD somewhere, however small, in the making of your card or project and give the CD credit.

I have used an image and papers from the fabulous new Downton Abbey CD from Crafter’s Companion for my card.


I have used elements from the Card Companions, the Countess of Grantham Designer Papers and the Countess of Grantham Co-ordinating Papers.  The pearls are in the corners, unfortunately they don't show up very well in the photograph, the ribbon and lace is from my stash.


I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Boots Challenge - Monochrome
Digi Choosday Challenge 37 - Monochromatic
My Sheri Crafts Challenge 166 - Tic  Tac Toe - Ribbon, Tag, Lace
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge 97 - Anything goes with a twist: Vintage/Shabby Chic

Thank you for calling today, make sure you pop over to the CD Sunday challenge blog and join in with our Pearls and Lace Challenge.  Don't forget you must use something from a CD somewhere, however small, in the making of your card or project and give the CD credit.

A marvelously layered card. The color & pattern of this elegant paper created a stunning backdrop for this lovely vintage image. This is truly well named "Downtown". Love the clothing from that period of time (well, if one had the money to enjoy that kind of apparel - & staff to take care of it! ) TFS & Hgus
