CD Sunday - Tantalizing Turquoise

Good Morning to one and all.  Another Sunday has come round so quickly and it is now the turn of Team B.  As you know from Jenny's posting last week we have split our team of 10 designers into two teams posting in alternate weeks.  This is to give us more time for designing and to keep us all fresh and inspiring.  That is the plan.
This weeks theme has been chosen by Wendy and is,  as you will have quickly noticed, another colour.  Colour themes seem to be popular and hopefully we will have plenty to look at in the coming week.
Here is my offering

For this card I used 'Yesterday's Memories' by Ooh La La - for all of the card including the paper ribbon. Just a black mat and some pearls were added from stash.

I was finding it difficult to find a true Turquoise colour as I kept finding wonderful images in the right tones on my screen but when they were printed out they were too blue. 

I hope you like the theme choice and I look forward to plenty of blog hopping.



  1. Beautifully created I love Turquoise as a colour, thank you for the beautiful Christmas card aswell Carol I'm so sorry I did not thank you before, wishing you a Happy New Year

  2. What an elegant era that was - I wouldn't have fitted in at all. A great image and a super card.

  3. Yes I agree a wonderful elegant era. Not got this CD wondered if it was all ladies or a variety of 'memories'? That bow doesn't look like paper at all....very realistic. Hugs Wynn xx

  4. Love the colour tone and such a lovely image. I agree with Wynn that bow looks real!

  5. Gorgeous card, but a difficult colour to use. Wonderful image I love these Art Deco cards and a cd I must put in my wish list.
    My hand is still not useable so another week of looking and admiring.

  6. A very elegant card Carol, love the image and your bow doesn't look like paper, it is great.

  7. I love the touch of colour on the image. A beautiful card x

  8. A really elegant card & it's a shame isn't it when photography changes the colour of things. I found this colour challenge the hardest to take a photo of. c
