Let's go Lilac

We had some lovely entries for our last challenge at CD Sunday but today it is time for a new challenge and this time the theme has been chosen by me :-)

So .............. Let's go Lilac.

Here is my card.

Oh my stars! I just love that sentiment, depending on how you say it it could mean lots of different things.

Anyway before I tell you more about my card I need to tell you that there is some exciting news over on the CD Sunday Challenge Blog about our new teamies who will be joining us for our next challenge. Please do go over to CD Sunday to say hello to them and visit their blogs to leave some love.

The CD I have used is Verity Rose from Crafter's Companion. I printed out one of the backing papers and also a sheet of embellishments from the folder containing images for Moonstruck who is the little character featured on this card. The whole collection comes with embossing folders, stamps and dies so I've been able to mix and match all the different elements.

The embossed center panel was embossed onto kraft card and then rubbed over with distress inks and finished off with some silver gilding wax.

Something beginning with B

We are at the start of another challenge for CD Sunday. Where does the time go?

Wynn has chosen our theme this time and it is Something beginning with B. There must be lots and lots of things but this is my interpretation.

I went with Bags and Bows for my Bs.

The backing paper is from Baby Love CD by Joanna Sheen and I've matted this onto some Coordinations card. The tags are from Work and Play Collection 11 by Polkadoodles. I edged them with a alcohol marker to match my colour scheme. I used a Tonic die to cut out my main image which is a digi by Sherri Baldy. I've coloured her in using alcohol pens and Spectrum Noir pencils. I just love the big eyes on these characters that are called 'My Besties'.

Can't wait to see which 'Bs' you will choose.
