CD SUNDAY - KIMONO

Good morning to you all, I am back home and looking forward to summer. Not much sign of it happening yet though. 
Another Sunday which means time for our latest challenge from CD SUNDAY
Thank you for your entries last week, I loved visiting you all and you certainly impressed me with your 'take' on the theme.

This week it's CAZ's turn to choose the theme and she decided to go with
KIMONO

We still have the lovely WYNN as our Guest Designer for June and she has created a beautiful design for you this week. Do take a look at her Blog to see how it has been made.

My DT Card is shown below


This week I used an 8 x 8 Scalloped Card for the base.
The main backing paper is from
Oriental Dreams CD 2 - Joanna Sheen. 
The next two layer's plus the image are from CD1
I decided to emboss the papers for a change, something I had seen my fellow team member Jenny do and I liked the effect she had obtained.
The main image has been printed onto Matte Photo Paper.
A couple of fabric flowers have been added for embellishments. Not so sure about the colour of the flowers but I hadn't any that were a paler colour.
I am trying to use up my Peel Offs and these fitted perfectly with the Oriental theme.

I hope you will continue to join in with us, just remember to use something from a CD in your design and say which it is you have used.

Do take a look at the blog as my fellow team members have created beautiful designs for you again this week.

Welcome home Christine, I bet you're finding it a little cold after Spain. A gorgeous card, I love it.

Christine hope you're keeping warm now that you're home from sunny Spain.

I love your layout and I don't think the deeper pink of the flowers detract in anyway. It's a beautiful card. There are so many fab images on that CD I expect like me you had problems choosing.

Those peel-offs make a great embellishment and this is a lovely, classically oriental card. Marina

A lovely card Christine. Pretty colour scheme and I think the splash of stronger colour with the flowers is just right.
