Hope you all had a great weekend despite the snow!
Here is my latest card, I've been having a play with my CD's this weekend and used a Shoes in Bloom image.

I wanted to make something clean and simple and I hope I've managed to.

I used half a piece of A4 cut in half lengthwise then folded to make the card base, used one of the images from Shoes in Bloom (sorry I can't remember whether it was vol 1 or 2).  I shrunk it so it was around about 2 inches.  I then matted the image onto a piece of white card and then onto a piece of black card.  I then made some flowers to match, to finish off I put a little dot of yellow pearly doodles in the centres.

I'm going to enter my card into The CD Sunday Challenge

Hope you all have a good week.

Blue Fairy

Hi there,

This is becoming a habit, 3rd post in 3 days!

I've really enjoyed making this card as blue is not a colour that would usually be my first choice

I used a fairy digi stamp that I have (sorry I can't remember where she's from) printed her onto white card and coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens.  I printed off the papers from the Pretty Sweet Cd from Polka Doodles, I then used my shimmer chalks to soften the edges of the image and backing papers.  I then matted the papers on to navy card and mounted them onto my card base which is a pale blue shimmery card.
I made the flowers and matched the colours to the backing papers in Craft Artist and finished the card with some card candy that I have.

I hope you like her.
