Something Old, Something New at CD Sunday

Hi there, can't believe it's Sunday again I think someone is stealing my days as they are going so fast it's almost a blur!

This week at CD Sunday we want you to go with the theme of something old, something new. Now that could be a wedding card but really what we were thinking was you should use something old and something new.  For my card I've used a new cd from Crafter's Companion called Love & Romance and Special Birthdays resource cd, this cd is filled with images from the papercrafting kit they did of the same name but it's so handy to have it in a printable format as I usually wouldn't use everything that comes in the kits.
This card is a 7x10 but because it's a wedding card I think the larger size works well, I printed the whole set from one of the images and that way there's no guess work to see if the colours match. I used the plainer of the designs as a mat, I'm not sure how I managed it but changed the settings on the printer and got the main backing paper to print out at the right size for the card, that way I didn't lose any of the design around the edge.
Before I stuck the the two sheets together I cut the tattered lace dies from the pink paper and I did forget to turn the paper over so the curves were the same way around but I quite like the look it has so ok in the end.  I used Centura Pearl card as the mats for the topper and sentiment and raised them up with some foam tape.  I tied a knot in the spiders web and glued it onto the card and then I used my old element which is the pins, my friend bought them for me about 18 months ago and I forgot I had them so when I found them again I knew what I would be using some of them for.

I hope you can join us and we'll call on you to say hello and comment on your design.
