Say it with Flowers

Time for another challenge at CD Sunday. Pamela has chosen the theme this time.

So lets say it with flowers:

I've used one of my favourite images and backing papers from Crafter's Companion Popcorn the Bear - Florals CD. I've matted everything onto some orange card and added a few gems. The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed with gold.

We are hoping to see lots of lovely floral creations and my fellow teamies have some lovely things to show you so don't forget to visit CD Sunday Challenge Blog for all the details of how to join in.

Anything Asian

Well it's time already for another fun challenge at CD Sunday.

Last time was Carol's sketch and she will be choosing her winners soon. Meanwhile Jane has picked Anything Asian and we hope you will have lots of fun with this one. There are some very different interpretations from my fellow teamies for you to enjoy so do go on over to CD Sunday and take a look.

Here is my card:


Eastern Treasures CD by Joanna Sheen
Embossing folder from Crafters' Companion
Rectangle die from Spellbinders
Circle die from Spellbinders
Creative Expressions metallic guilding polish - citrus green
Bakers Twine
Chinese coins

I used a 6 x 6" base for my card and covered it with the backing paper that matches the topper from the CD. I then die cut and oblong and a circle in black card using dies by Spellbinders. I used an embossing folder from Crafters' Companion from the Kimono range on white card and then rubbed citrus green metallic guilding polish over the top. I used another die to cut the white card and wrapped the bakers twine around it before matting it onto the black card. I then attached it to my card.

I matted the topper onto the decorative circle black card and attached this to the front of my card.

I then just finished off with some ribbon and Chinese coins.

I do hope you will join us for this challenge (don't forget to use something from a CD) and look forward to visiting your blogs.
