Country Living

It's time for a new challenge at CD Sunday and the theme for the next fortnight is Country Living chosen by Pamela.  Don’t forget to use something from a CD somewhere, however small, in the making of your card or project and give the CD credit.


I used a beautiful topper from the Crafter's Companion A Country Life CD ROM, along with co-ordinating papers.


The sentiment is also from the CD along with the flowers that I have fussy cut and added using foam pads for dimension.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Southern Girls Challenge - Pretty in Pastels
Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Firday Challenge 81 - Birthday
Craftaholics R Us Challenge 3 - Any Birthday Card or Tag
Aud Sentiments Challenge 165 - Anything Goes + A Sentiment 

Make sure you pop over to the CD Sunday Challenge blog and check out the DT Inspiration - we would love for you to join us for our Country Living challenge, just make sure you use something from a CD somewhere, however small, in the making of your card or project and give the CD credit.

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

I love this image Pauline, a really pretty card to represent my first theme choice. It reminds me of a cottage in a nearby village called Merthyr Mawr - a real chocolate box picture. And I love those pink roses.

Love the way you make your own flowers. They're dimensional but not lumpy, perfect for cards to post as well. This scene is a beauty. I'm thinking miss Marple and a gin tonic in my hand...

Sue said...

Hugs
