Such fun ....

When I saw the challenge theme over at the CD Sunday Challenge blog this week I knew I had to make a card and I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  I have had the Nursery Rhymes Papercrafting CD for ages and have never used it, so it was time I made a card with it.

The theme for the challenge is 'To the Moon and Back', so I thought the nursery rhyme 'Hey Diddle Diddle' would be ideal:

I have layered the image onto a Spellbinders Deckled Rectangle and then onto green card stock, the gingham papers are from Pink Petticoat and I computer generated the sentiment and then stamped the blank LOTV sentiment tag over it before fussy cutting them.  The ribbon, buttons and twine are from my stash.

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

The CD Sunday Challenge - To the Moon and Back
ABC Challenge 48 - National Children's Day
Card Mania Challenge 31 - Pastel Colours
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Anything Goes
4 Krafty Girlz Challenge 3 - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz Challenge 40 - Animals

Thank you for visiting today, please pop in again soon.  There is still plenty of time to enter my Candy draw, if you would like to take a look you can find it here.

Your card is great Pauline, a super image for the challenge, this one had me stumped for a while!

I've never heard of fussy cutting, is it a new technique?

Hope you're keeping well.

Like Jo above me said I've never heard of fussy cutting too, first I thought it was made with a scissor?

Have a nice weekend, hugs from the Netherlands,

Great card Pauline. I love the expression on the dish.
Please - what is 'fussy cutting'. I am very fussy about my cutting out but not sure about this term.
Thank you for joining in with us.
