CD Sunday - Around the World

I got a bit excited about this particular challenge as it was my turn to choose the challenge and consequently to choose the Top 3.
I knew exactly what I was going to do - go off and find my 'Carol's Cubes'. I was fascinated by them when Carol first showed them on C & C and I think I bought all of them. Sadly neglected with my passion for all this parchment but being on this DT means that I have to dig out forgotten supplies and skills. One of the reasons why I love being part of CD Sunday.
So here is my card

I loved making it. I got messy stamping and then got out my watercolours and my best brush and had a whale of a time.
I used the Egypt, Africa and India cubes. The bp for the card is from Ooh La La. The Mappa Mundi is from ?? and the border and wording were added using my ACDSee photo manager programme.

We had some great cards entered last week and it wasn't an easy theme and I know Jocelyn is going to find it difficult to choose her Top 3.
Have fun with our theme this week, which I think is a little bit easier, and I know I will enjoy my trip 'Around the Blogs'. I have a little something for the winner.


  1. I love it Carol! Very well thought out and original. Never heard of Carol's Cubes.

  2. A gorgeous card Carol. I remember when these were first on Create and Craft, I was on a tighter budget in those days so they went onto a wish list, unfortunatly they never made it to the top.

    PS Off to see what I can come up with now.

  3. A lovely card Carol with beautiful colouring.
