Bah! Humbug! - Text

Over on Bah! Humbug! this week the ladies want us to use text, this card is using some text panels from a HOTP booklet I have had for a few years. There is a main image and then a smaller one for the inside of the card, I have used a black card with silver embossed snowflakes that came from a visit to Kanban a year or two ago, the panels are softened with chalks and layered onto glitter card.
I like the look of the glitter card but it is a pig to get anything to stick to, I have used pinflair but you can see it a little through the paper so this will have to go to someone who's a bit shortsighted,lol or maybe I need a diecut snowflake to cover it. I added the silver ribbon to finish it off which is another purchase from a while ago, in fact I think it came with something else
but is wire edged so not good for tying into bows.

CD Sunday - Stamp on your cd

Good morning all and as it's Sunday it's time for a new challenge over on CD Sunday, this week we're asking you to stamp on your cd. No I don't mean jump up and down on it, just use a stamp with it, now this can be any theme you like and any type of stamp. I have made the stamp the main part of the card but you could just use a sentiment or something small, anything goes with this one really.

This week the backing paper has come from the Artylicious cd Decadent Brocade, all the papers I have used have been inked using distress inks, the colours I have used are Wild Honey and Bundled Sage. The stamps are from a sheet from Graphicus and it has some great birds on it most I've never really used.

I am also entering this into some other challenges this week and they are

Southern Girls - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - A Tweet and a Flutter!
The Stamp Man - Distress
Taylored Expressions - Sketch
Daring Card Makers -things that fly, flutter or hover in the sky
Alphabet - U unused stash
ABC Challenge - D is for Distressing
Rainbow Lady's - Feathers

I do hope you'll come over and join in with us, I'm looking forward to seeing your creations.
