CD Sunday - Garden Pleasures

Good Morning.  This weeks theme couldn't be more apt for me  as yesterday I spent a wonderful day at the gardens at  RHS Wisley - where I am a member.  There were nine of us wandering around - chatting and catching up with news whilst admiring the wonderful gardens.  Our group came from as far afield as Holland, Wales, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Sussex, Kent and Surrey.   We all agreed that we never tire of our annual group visits to Wisley so a 'Garden Pleasure' it truly was and it will always be so.
For my card I used a Pamela West Cd - Volume 2 Cd 1.  I printed the topper on parchment and embossed all the appropriate areas and then fixed it to the matching backing paper and card with tiny brads. The blue bow is a die cut and the 4 corner flowers were punched and were from stash.

This is our last week with Tess as our Guest Designer.  Tess,  it was lovely to have you back with us this month,  and thank you for your beautiful creations.


  1. Beautiful Carol, the image on the parchment looks like a water colour, lovely bow and layout.

  2. It's a gorgeous image Carol and a lovely card. I went to Wisley back in the mid nineties when I lived in Cambridgeshire and can still picture the layout of the place and the wonderful plants I saw there. Would love to go again some day.

  3. The chair looks so inviting Carol, a lovely card. I've never been to Wisley, it's about time I did, as it's not really that far away.

  4. Hi Carol

    Lovely card, what a great idea to print onto parchment I like your idea do you mind if I pinch it one day.
    I love this cd it has so many beautiful designs but there again I do like Joanna sheens CDs
    Have a nice weekend, I won't be joining in again this week still not anywhere near a hundred percent, the infection has gone but the stitches still ave a while before they dissolve.

  5. A wonderfully 'relaxing' card Carol. Thanks for a brill day yesterday - here's to the next time.

  6. Lovely design Carol and lucky you to spend a day at Wisley with your friends. We haven't been for such a long time as it isn't near to us.
    Hugs xx

  7. So pretty and it has a soft genteel feel to it.
