Wooo hoooo!! Guest Designer over at CD Sunday :-)

I was over the moon when I was invited to be this month's GDT over at CD Sunday, not only because its such a great challenge but also because I have some good friends on the team too.

This weeks challenge is 'For Someone Special' and its sponsored by Cute Daisy May, and I was lucky enough to be able to use this gorgeous digistamp (you can find her at Whoopsi Daisy). She's such a beautiful stamp, I really enjoyed colouring her, especially all that lovely hair.

When I first started crafting I used CDs a lot but I've got more into stamping and my poor cds have been sat on a shelf in my craft room gathering dust. Anyway I dusted them off and had a good browse and I found loads of goodies I'd forgotten about.  For this cd I've used a bp from Artylicious 'Essence of Nature' CD, I must admit I do use this cd quite a bit as the backing papers are stunning but I had a really good look through it and found all sorts of things I'd never used. I printed the circular frame off twice and decoupage it up to giveit a bit of dimension. I edged the frame and bp with a gold kryon pen. I stamped and embossed a background using tree stamps from Elusive images on some vellum and inked in a sun.

I coloured the image with promarkers and added some glitter to her wings and the flowers in her hair. As its a card for someone special, I added loads of flowers. The large ones are also printed from Artylicious 'Essence of Nature' CD, cut out sprized with glimmer mist and scrunched up before being layerd up with glittery centres. The rest of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been glittered. The lovely little charm is from Bunny Zoe's crafts and the pearls are from my stash

You can see the vellum background and the layered frame a little better in this pic
