Time for a new challenge at CD Sunday and it is Sue's turn to choose this time. Sue would like us to use a button, or buttons, in our design. If you are anything like me you will have loads to choose from :-)

I made my card using a three panel pre-cut card. 

I used the Gnomes and Fairies CD from La Pashe and printed off two sheets of backing paper, one to cover the front of the card and the other for the inside. I then used a Spellbinder die to cut an aperture in the first two panels. 

I sandwiched some acetate between the apertures and then stuck the two panels together to form the front of the card. On the inside I printed off one of the scenes from the CD and added this to the grass backing paper. The Happy Birthday was cut using a Crafters' Companion die.

The decoupage for the gnome has a front and back view so I built up the image on the front of the card using foam pads and then did the same thing on the inside using the back view pieces. 

I added some dotty ribbon and the greeting that came on the design sheet. The leaves are die cut and some of my favourites at the moment, (I think they are from Britannia) which just left me to add those all important buttons which look like flowers among the foliage. 

Don't forget to check out what my fellow teamies at CD Sunday Challenge Blog have to show you this time. To join in all you have do to is remember to use something from a CD and let us know which one.

We had some lovely entries last time around for my theme choice of Seasons so I'm going to be busy later today choosing my Top 3.


  1. This is such a fun card Jocelyn, it also reminded me that I bought this CD and have not used it yet.

  3. A fun card Jocelyn, your flower buttons look fabulous.

  4. Wow what a lot of work has gone into your card. I think I might just have to have a go at this idea. Love how you've used flower buttons too.....another great idea!!! Wynn x
