I'll toast to that

This is a large card, although the photo doesn't quite show that. I've used a MCS cdrom called Sassy chic for the images and background paper. The paper is actually tiled wine glasses - I thought it looked quiet good! I also changed the colour of her skirt and part of her handbag to tone better. Before her skirt was bright green. I could only change part of the handbag as the handle proved a bit difficult, so instead of being all green it now has some orange on it. The sentiment is left over from a Kanban kit and some flowers and scrolls from my stash.
The card is for the CD Sunday challenge which this week is Wine Buffs.
Had a not so great experience with C&C - really looking forward to a new CD rom popping through the door, despatched last Wed, arrived today.........except they sent a pack of paper!!!!!!!! So, onto the customer services and ok it is freepost to send back but it is the inconvenience and the wait 14-21days to get it put right. I know some ladies are continually having problems with them, so I suppose I should count myself lucky that I have only had a few bad experiences.

Hi Linby - you and me both with C & C. I ordered the new Encyclopaedia and got something else entirely and what a performance to get it altered.
Enough of that - I love your card and it fits our challenge beautifully. Well done on changing the colours to suit.
Thank you for joining us at Cd Sunday.

Great card Lynn, lovely light colours, I don't use C & C anymore, too many messed up orders and their overseas postage rate is way to expensive, always go direct these days, thanks for sharing at CD Sunday xx
