Mellow Yellow

It's Wynn's turn to choose our theme and we've gone all Mellow for the new challenge at CD Sunday - Mellow Yellow in fact. The team have some great inspiration to show you so don't forget to go over to CD Sunday Challenge Blog and find out what you need to do to join in. The rules are quite simple - we just need you to use a CD somewhere in your design and credit it so that we know which one you used.

My image and backing papers are from Flower Fairies Friends - Fairies of the Garden Disc 7 - Marigold from Crafter's Companion. I built up a few mats and layers using dies that give a stitched effect around the edge. There are quite a few makes of dies with stitching effects and I really like these for a bit of extra detail. I used the backing paper for die cutting the matching flowers too and buried in my stash were some skeleton leaves that have not seen the light of day for a very long time but I think they look pretty with this design. The centre of the flowers are made up using little gems and I then just added a bow. 

I hope you have fun playing with Mellow Yellow and we would love to see you joining in with our challenge.

This cute little fella comes from Morehead CD by Crafter's Companion. I've embossed the white background and mounted it onto black card. I then added a little stamped sentiment.
