Layer it Up with CD Sunday

Here is a close up .....

Christine has chosen the theme this time for our CD Sunday Challenge.

I chose an image from Flower Fairies of the Garden CD to decoupage and layer up having first used the Happy Birthday Tattered Lace die to make the card base.

Don't forget that our Purple Crazy challenge in remembrance of Wendy is still running alongside our usual challenges with lovely prizes to be won and you can find it here.

Purple Crazy - A tribute to Wendy

Sadly we lost our DT member, Wendy earlier this year. She was a valued and much loved member of our DT. It seemed only right that we should hold a special challenge in remembrance. Our special Purple Crazy challenge starts today. Just pop over to the CD Sunday Challenge Blog for details of this challenge which will run alongside our usual challenges for a month. There is a special prize bundle too so make sure you join in and go PURPLE CRAZY.

Here is my card:

I've used a stepper die by Presscut for the card base I love these new style dies that are appearing at the moment. They are so easy with no measuring! :-)

I used two CDs - the backing papers are from Here Come the Girls from Creative Crafting World and the main image (isn't she fab) is from My Besties Sweet Geek CD with artwork by Sherri Baldy. I chose a digi image to colour myself but there are lots of pre-coloured besties and other things on this CD. I added glaze to her glasses and lots of die cut flowers, fronds, ribbon and gems just for Wendy and all in her favourite colour.

Please help us celebrate such a lovely lady by joining in our special challenge.

You can find our normal challenge clean and simple here.

Clean and Simple

Today is the start of a new challenge at CD Sunday. Clean and Simple (CAS) chosen by Jenny.

There are some great examples by my fellow teamies to inspire you over on the CD Sunday Challenge Blog. 

Here is mine:

I took a 7 x 7 plain white card for the base. I actually had a piece of backing paper leftover from another project (it was printed from the Cute Companions CD Volume 1) which I used for the bottom of my card and I also punched a balloon out of it too. I used a micron pen to draw the string and added a border of printed ribbon to make my CAS birthday card.

We had lots of entries for our last challenge so that will keep Carol busy choosing her top three. We hope to see you all joining in again with our new challenge.
