Aged to perfection

I had a bit of a time deciding how to interpret the challenge over on CD Sunday this week which is "Aged to Perfection". Not least because I made a great card, fitted the theme perfectly, when I realised I had forgotten to use something from a cdrom! So back to the drawing board and this time I have used a cdrom, in fact I have used two, both from Debbi Moore. 100 Beautiful Sepia and Tinted vintage images for the main image and Vintage Heaven CD for the rest of the elements. I really love that background paper, shame to cover it up really! I've also used some Ranger liquid pearls in the centre of the flowers, my first time with this product and wow! they really look like pearls, fab.

A gorgeous card Linby, that photo has a very aged look to it. I remember my Grandmother having a couple of photos that had been tinted. Thanks for joining in at CD Sunday this week.

It's a lovely card, and I agree about the gorgeous background paper. I hope you printed out an extra sheet to just look at!

That's the second time in 24 hours I've seen liquid pearls used they look great. Must have a go!

You're not the first and you won't be the last - to get a great idea for the theme and then forget to use a CD. I know I've done it. You have made a beautiful card with Debbi's CD's - a beautiful main image and gorgeous bp.
Thank you for joining us again this week.
