CD Sunday

CD Sunday is a new challenge blog with a fantastic DT, their first challenge is 'Wings and Things'.  I think its a fab idea to have a challenge using craft cds - I've got so many gathering dust in my craft room its a great opportunity to make use of them. Unfortunately my printer is out of ink (talk about great timing lol) but like most of us, I've got loads of stuff printed out and not used so until I get my CISS I'll be using up lots of left overs.

Here is my entry, using a gorgeous BP from Artylicious 'Decadent Delights' cd

The paper is matted on to some gold silk mirri card. I've stamped the huge butterfly from Elusive Images 'Patchwork Butterfly' themeplate on to acetate and embossed it with Halo gold EP before painting with Tinkabella Inks. I love Tinkabella inks on acetate - they are translucent so give a gorgeous 'stained glass' effect, I've tried to pick it up in the photo by as you know I am not the worlds best photographer lol. I've used a foiled sentiment, coloured with teal tinkabella ink and matted on to more gold silk mirri card. The sentiment is also from Graphicus, it doesn't show up to well on the pic but it reads:
"Take time to be friendly,
it is the road to happiness. Take time to dream,
it is hitching your wagon to a star.
Take time to love and to
be loved, it is the priviege of the gods.
Take time to look
around, it is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to laugh, it is the
music of the soul.
(Old English Prayer)

To finish off, I've used 2 floradoodles coloured with teal ink again, for the centres I've used a blob of silicone glue covered with gold microbeads and then added some fb pearls coloured with stream alcohol ink in the corners.

This card is also for the following challenges:
Sunday Stamper: Free as a bird
Creatilicious Challenge: Flowers and wings
My time to craft: Quick quotes
Sentimental Sundays: Blooming Gorgeous (another new challenge, Ann has some fabulous digi sentiments)
Allsorts challenge: a photo inspiration challenge this week with a photo of a gorgeous butterfly bracelet.
