CD Sunday - a Sponsored Challenge!

The theme this time has been chosen by Sharon Duncan who has kindly offered to sponsor this fortnight's challenge. She's chosen the theme of Paws and the prize will be one of her DVDs called Playful Pups.If you click here there's a video with some of the contents of the CD Rom. There's 490+ printable pages which is why it's on a DVD but you use it the same as a CD Rom. The design team were sent a selection of 20 files with toppers, backing papers and sentiments/accessories. I chose a topper of a terrier hiding in a flower bed. There's a matching backing paper on the DVD but we weren't sent it so I chose another very pretty flowery paper. I teamed it with a pale green striped paper which is available in different colourways on the DVD.

I made a large rosette from 3 strips of the striped paper and after die-cutting the topper into a circle I glued it to the rosette. The card base is an easel card which I covered in the flowery paper. The easel 'stopper' is a Tonic die - Scotty Dog. I used card in similar colours to the backing papers for the dog. I finished the card with 2 bones again using a Tonic die - Dinner's Up. 

I hope we have lots of entries for this challenge - it's been a long time since we've had a sponsor and Sharon has now kindly sponsored us 3 times. The challenge runs from 16th to 29th October and you must use something from a craft CD rom in the making of your item. It can be something as small as a bow or sentiment and you must name the CD used in your blog post. Good luck everyone!

Gggrrrr! Mr Blogger hasn't published my scheduled post again!
