Aged to Perfection - CD Sunday

We have a new theme at CD Sunday for you this week - Aged to Perfection which was chosen by Sue-B. Lots of scope with this one to do lots of things :-).

Sadly it is Gloria's last week as our GDT, but hasn't she been amazing - please visit her blog and leave some love.

My fellow teamies have some amazing inspiration for you too.

The base of my card is from what used to be Cupcake Crafting  (now  Creative Crafting World) and is one of their fancy cut cards. I have used some distress ink to soften the white card. My main image of Betty Boop came from a CD I got on ebay and despite her age I think you will agree she is still lookin' good!

The loopy background was done using Martha Stewart punches. I then took a piece of card and enbossed it with a cogs design. I then rubbed over the raised surface with a Versamark ink pad and sprinkled some verdigris embossing powder over it and heat set it. The sentiment is a rubber stamp again using the same embossing powder. The circular die is by Spellbinders and the die cut bow by Lil' Inker Designs at the top has a buckle threaded through.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenge:

Joanna Sheen's Challenge Blog - Girls, Girls, Girls


  1. A great card Jocelyn. Don't we all wish we could look as good as her as we age - to perfection of course? I think I have that cogs embossing folder - it goes so well with the clock
