CD Sunday - Beautiful Blue

Good Morning everyone. It is getting a tad colder here but no snow - thank goodness.
Thank you for your entries last week in our not quite so easy theme of Poetry Corner.  I'll be choosing a winner and letting Jenny know.

This week our theme has been chosen by Christine and it is " Beautiful Blue."  I have chosen to use parchment and I printed a willow pattern download from Alan and Barry straight to parchment and then embossed where appropriate.  I then used a fancy grid to achieve the oval shape.  My CD content this week is the background paper which is a crackle blue from Ooh La La's - Shoes in Bloom. 
The mirri card behind the oval is in fact a beautiful blue but the scanner has reduced it to black

p.s.  I am glad to report that there has been a great deal of improvement in the condition of my arm and I am now so pleased to feel so much better than I have done over the last 18 weeks. To quote our family saying.  'I am much more betterer'.


  1. Beautiful card, I love the image and it looks gorgeous on the parchment,
    So glad your arm is getting back to full health, it's amazing how long it takes.

  2. Carol - that parchment oval is fabulous. I got some parchment tools, grid - prodders etc year ago but have done nothing with them since the first day.Seeing this I really should rake them out and have a play at least. It's a beautiful card.

  3. This is gorgeous Carol, I love 'Willow Pattern's'.
    A stunning parchment Oval certainly picks out the design.
    Pleased you are feeling 'much more betterer'
    Hugs xx

  4. Fabulous Carol, your parchment work is always so beautiful, the scanner missed a few bits so i can see the beautiful blue card you have used. And also well done on your arm getting betterer. xx sue-b

  5. Lovely card, Carol...where is the oriental oval from?

  6. Just looked at your post and seen where it's from...doh!
