Summer of '59

I'm too young to remember 1959!
But when the Boys let me have a sneak Peek of the artwork I fell in love with it!
Now I think you can see why.
I think the boys just keep going from strength to strength with their CD's.
Here's where its from

and will be on your screens on Create & Craft on 30th May at 12 noon and 4pm.

So this card was one of the pyramid cards. Not one of my set ones, which I dont fiddle with too much, but one of my free-style ones.
I wanted to use different shapes this time, some we forget over time, until reminded, so here's your reminder!
Base cream Card stock, scored at 5, 10, 20 and 25 cms.
Backing paper from one of the Women walking sets, to match the colour of the dress. Some gorgeous strips of pearlised Cream wire embossed card stock from Anna Marie Designs, wrapped with Bakers twine, and placed on top of the backing paper.
A design from the MTC gallery cut files, cut onto one of the dotty backing papers printed onto card stock. 
Then the pyramid design was placed on top. 
The bunting is from the CD as well, and I chose the green as a contrast to the blue, and picking up the colour of the palm trees.
Last but not least was the sentiment............On the last CD, A Man About Town, the boys included as many variations of male sentiments as they could come up with, and they have done the same this time but female relative versions.
So I printed them off in the co-ordinating green, and then mounted it to the front.
And job done.
I do like this CD even if Ian did steal my thunder and include handbags!
There'll be more coming over the next few days, both from myself, and my fellow Teamies, so keep your eyes open, there's some stunning sneak Peeks coming your way!
