My Time to Craft - Guest Design Team Card - 23 February 2013

Today sees my last card as Guest Design Team Member for My Time to Craft.  I want to thank everyone on the Design Team for having me.  The challenge topic for this week is "song or film inspired".
My song or film inspired was "Lady in Red" by Chris du Burgh.  When my husband and I were going out "our song" was Missing You by Chris du Burgh as we worked many miles apart and because we were both chefs we didn't get much time together.  This was the first song played at our evening wedding reception and we had to dance to on our own - yikes!!  I've always liked one of Chris' other songs "Lady in Red" and this image make me think of that.

Some of the images I have used are from a Debbi Moore's magazine but others are from the Debbi Moore My Fair Lady CD.  I think this is one of my all time favourite Debbi Moore CDs even though it gives me a lot of trouble (for some reason when I send to print I get lines all over the images/papers and although I've installed new printer drivers and had help from Debbi's Team (and also other Teams as it's not just Debbi's CDs) I have to snapshot the page, take into Irfanview and then print from there and it's fine - so for some reason these kind of CDs don't like my printer and I can't afford another one so it's just one thing I have to put up with).
The card was for a 50th birthday but I kept a large hint about the lady's age for the inside.  I used my Cricut to cut the "50" and "today" and used a Creative Expressions scroll stamp to fill the letters and numbers.
The card has been finished off with gems, pearls, cherry blossom flowers, strands of pearls, pearl flower embellishments, lace, ribbon, personalised insert and sentiment off the computer.
