CD Sunday - Ring a roses

Now for this week's theme I had no lack of possible images from many CD's to choose from and I settled on Joanna Sheen's - The Pamela West Collection.
To add some 3D effect I punched out some roses and the blue flowers from a spare topper with my Pinflair punch.  I love using this punch - you get such a good effect.  The butterfly in the corner is made with parchment and is from a pattern by Pauline Loweth.  I have a few of these in my butterfly stash box and the green and yellow I had used on this one is a perfect match with this picture. I haven't chosen a sentiment so it will go in my box for use at a later date.

We had some great Toybox Treasures and I enjoyed my visits around the Blogs.

By the time this scheduled post has arrived I will have had my day out at Covent Garden with our  Ladies who Lunch group. We have been doing this for sometime now and we always have a great day and I am sure that yesterday will have been no exception.

Here is a small addition to my posting.  An ATC made with one of the small toppers left over from the sheet printed for the card.  I don't like to waste these sheets. I used the Pinflair punch again to punch out a couple of mini butterflies.  You can just see them.


  1. Carol once again the parchment work is stunning and I like the extra bits of flowers that have added a bit of interest. Great card.

  3. Hi carol,
    Gorgeous card, I love this Cd, and use it quite often, I like the way you have used the image and put the extra flowers on it.


  4. Fabulous card Carol. Love the punched out flowers and of course the exquisite butterfly. I like the Pamela West cds and have made many cards from them but isnt it funny, when I look at your card, I cannot remember seeing that image! Thats what comes from having too many cd's!!! Michelle x
