Sarahs New CD and 1st Sample

As I promised yesterday Ive posted my first sample for my dear friend Sarah Hallam of from her brand new Cd, as you can see its  called Yesteryears Floral Vase Edition, it has some really beautiful designs which incorporate, toppers, decoupage, backing papers, embellishments, scrapbook pages etc, they will give such pleasure to use. Sarah is previewing this Cd on Sunday 17th January at 12 noon on Create and Craft, I sincerely hope that you will be supporting her on that day.
For my first sample I used a pansy design, I printed the main topper onto a piece of semi-gloss photo paper and mounted it onto a piece of mauve pearlescent card. I also printed one of the sentiments from the cd and cut it out and mounted this onto a piece of the same mauve card.
The base card is a 8"x 8" card white card, and for the first layer Ive used the same mauve pearlescent card, and on top of this I have layered up one of the beautiful backing papers that come with the pansy design, but Ive printed it onto a piece of icepearl pearlescent card, and Im really pleased with the result. The band across the centre was a piece of the same mauve card but Ive cut both edges with one of the new deep edged Martha Stewart Border punches, and before sticking it to my card Ive wrapped a piece of mauve ribbon around it and stuck it to the back, and then positioned it in the centre of my base card.
Ive then stuck my main image in the centre and the greeting was stuck to the bottom on the right hand side, and to finish of Ive greated a flower from some of the left over paper and popped a pearl brad and spacer through the centre, and before sticking it to my card, Ive punched out some leaves and stuck them in a circle on top of which I have put my flower.
