The Wild West

Good Evening.  My card to share today is for the challenge over at CD Sunday   Get ahead - Get a Hat.   I have gone into Joanna Sheen's American Frontier CD for the image and backing paper.  When I picked the image I thought is was black and white, but after printing I realised it has some sepia tones.  I found some brown card with a lovely gold sheen to use for the matting.  I started out with gold mirror card and thought it was too bright for the image.  I remembered that I bought some matt gold and silver card from ebay and was a bit disappointed with it when it arrived, I dug it out of the cupboard and discovered it was just what I needed.   The sentiment was computer generated.  I feel that there is something lacking on the card, but can't think what - any suggestions will be gratefully received.

Many thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and for the comments you have been leaving

  6. Hi Beryl, love the card and image. This is an underused cd in my house and it has some very useful images on it. I like the card and think it's fine as it is, sometimes less is more as they say. If I were to put anything on it maybe I would add a small feather or two. Thanks for joining in with us at CD Sunday.

  7. Fabulous card Beryl. i keep forgetting this CD especially for men it is great. I think adding something might spoil it.


  8. I don't think there is anything lacking at all Beryl - I love the image and I think it would be wrong to detract from that . The backing paper is perfect just patterned enough but subtle.
    Don't think I'm going to SEC Beryl - wrong dates I think. Max would have mentioned it if we were.

  11. Hi Beryl. A lovely striking card and very manly. If I was to add anything I also think I would use a feather or feathers but it does look great as it is.
    Thank you for joining us at Cd Sunday.

  12. Isn't it great when you actually get to use something that you thought was a mistake when you bought it. The moral is - buy everything you can!
    I don't think your card is lacking anything. It's a great image, the bp tones well with it and the overall design is lovely. I'm sure Ellis will love it.
