Use a CD

Good morning to you all in blogland. I hope the weather is being as kind to you as it is to us here in Cyprus.

Over at Crafting with Dragonflies this fortnight Hilde has challenged the team to create a card using a CD either as a card or on a card. Wow this really is a challenge!! I've not used a CD on a card before but I love a challenge so here I go with the details of how I made my card.

I used pink card stock and ran it through the Cuttle Bug to emboss it. Then cut it to make a semi circle rocker card. I then stamped the border with what we call here 'penny stamps'. The set I used was flowes and leaves. So I inked them up with pink and purple and green. I had found some fancy silky fibres in my stash that I've had for eons and used that to wrap around the CD. It's variegated pinks and purples so matched perfectly with the stamped border.

We have two generous sponsors for this challenge, Eureka Stamps and QKR Stampede.

I used a Eureka digi, Pansies' and coloured it in matching pinks and purple using bright sharpie pens. I attached it to a greeting tag I made, stamping the same border as the card, and added it to the centre of the CD. The CD was attached to the card with 3D tape.

This was  a simple, quick card to make but I'm pleased with the result. Now it's your turn. I'm sure you'll have lots of ideas of your own but if not pop over to see what the rest of the Dragonflies have created. There are some Wow!! ideas there so you won't be disappointed. Don't forget to also visit our very generous sponsors, Eureka Stamps and QKR Stampede.
