Christmas Robin

This is my fourth and final week as Guest Designer for the CD Sunday Challenge and our theme this week is 'Inspired by Nature'.  I would like to thank the CD Sunday Team for inviting me to Guest Design for them, I have thoroughly enjoyed the month I have spent with them.

I have used an image and papers from my Joanna Sheen - The Jayne Netley Mayhew Collection Part 2 CD.  I use this image every year on a Christmas card, I love it so much.  It is not actually a decoupage image on the CD so I print it out multiple times and make my own.

I have decorated the inside of my card using the same layout and papers along with a small image that is actually on the backing papers.

Card Recipe:

Image and Papers:  Joanna Sheen - The Jayne Netley Mayhew Collection
Part 2
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools:  Spellbinders -  Twisted Metal Tags and Accents and Classic Square (inside card)
Embellishments:  Card Candy from stash
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat - Handwritten Christmas Greetings

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

Whimsy Stamps Challenge 53 - Traditional Christmas Colours
Creative Card Crew Challenge 24 - Anything Goes
Crafty Ann's Challenge 79 - Birds and/or Animals
Delicious Doodles Challenge 12 - Something That Flies
Card and Scrap Challenge 43 - Christmas
Christmas Crafting Challenge 16 - Decoupage
Party Time Tuesday's Challenge 95 - Colour/Picture Challenge (I was inspired by the red and the bird)
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge 196 - Make a card or project that makes you feel Happy!
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge 85 - Inspiration from a song (When The Red Red Robin Comes Bob Bob Bobbin' Along)

Thank you for joining me today, please pop over to The CD Sunday Challenge Blog and have a look at the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join in with our 'Inspired by Nature' Challenge this week.  All you need to do is use something from a CD - even if only a small piece of paper or embellishment and make sure you give credit to the CD you have used.

I hope you are all having a fab weekend.
