This is my card for this weeks CD Sunday challenge, the theme is 'Thank You' and I decided to use my lovely new stamps and dies from Clearly Besotted, the CD element on this card is the stripy backing paper from my Bearly Mine Designs Designer Extreme CD.

I followed the sketch from Seize the Birthday and then remembered that it had to be a Birthday card - it was a nice sketch anyway!  The sentiment is from one of  Joanna Sheen's Wordy stamps collections and I have stamped it onto a Spellbinders die cut and inked the edges, I added a border made with one of my  X-cut border punches.

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

The CD Sunday Challenge - Thank You
Allsorts Challenge Week 203 - A Passion for Flowers
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 156 - Punched Borders
Dilly Beans Challenge - Flowers
QKR Stampede Challenge 35 - Punches and/or Dies
Crafty Ribbons Challenge 43 - Pink and Green
Cuttin and Stampin Challenge 15 - Thank You Card
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 143 - Focus on the Sentiment

Well, that's it from me, it's my birthday so quite a busy day planned and this evening we are going to the local Costa for a charity music event where my eldest son will be performing with his band.

Thank you for calling.




Happy Birthday Pauline have a fabulous day and just love your card it is beautiful
Hugs Dianne xx :)

A lovely card Pauline. Had to smile when I read that you suddenly remembered that it had to be a Birthday card. In the past I made a card for CD Sunday and when I had finished realised that I hadn't used a CD. 'Tis easily done - daft but easy.
Thank you for joining in with us and from one almost Birthday Girl to a Birthday Girl hope you have a super day.
