2 Cards in 2 Days!!!

Think I'm on a roll here folks - 2 cards in 2 days! But no housework done though LOL!!
As soon as I saw the theme for CD Sunday Challenge was Something Sweet I knew I had the CD to fit the's called 'Something Sweet'! I bought it from ebay sometime ago and it's by The Creative Cottage. I decided to make an easel card as I like this style of card.

The stripey BP is as it was on the CD, the 3 individual cupcakes were taken into MCS and made smaller before cutting them out and layering onto the scalloped circles. The bit I'm most proud of is the BP on the base of the card. I took a BP from the CD into MCS - it was originally a pinl background with large yellow polka dots. I made it quite small and then turned it into a tile dragging it to cover an A4 sheet. Then I took the 4 cupcakes into MCS, made then quite small, copied and pasted them until there was 4 of each. I tilted them at different angles and spread them out over the BP. I'm really pleased with how the paper turned out, what do you think?
Must dash now to do some house things, like iron at least on outfit each for tomorrow.

At last a card!

Where does the time go? Is it really 4 months since I last posted? Eeek!!!
Every Sunday I decide I'm going to take part in the CD Sunday Challenge and before I know it It's Sunday again and a new theme's been posted. Well this week I've just about managed to get a card done and it's a biggie - an A4 landscape card. The theme this week was CD + stamping.

I've used a recent QVC TSV from Kanban. The chandelier is from a stamp with the backing paper from the Kanban 'Stamp Backgrounds' Cd. I took the BP into MCS and changed the colour as there wasn't a pink one on the CD. The main image of the rather elegant lady is recycled from an old notecard. Hubby decided the card needed a bit of bling (and who am I to disagree!)so I added lots of gems and some jewel brads.
