The theme for the CD Sunday Plus Challenge is Anything Goes. You must have used something printed from a CD, a USB or a digital download and you must state where the item used is from.
I buy quite a few craft magazines and often use the card designs in them for inspiration. My cards don’t end up looking exactly the same because I use what items I have here and put my spin on it.
Some of my late husband's work colleagues have stayed in touch. One guy in particular messages me regularly and he visits me at home or we meet up in town for a cuppa. He likes cycling and will go on really long bike rides. He’s currently training to do a charity ride with a friend from John O’Groats to Land’s End. So his birthday card just had to have a bicycle on it! There was a great design in Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine (issue 199) that I knew would be perfect and I had a bicycle die! I chopped the basket off that was at the front of the bike!
The backing paper was designed by me in Serif Craft Artist using two bicycle images, grouped together and then using the rubber stamp feature to fill the page. I also changed the colours as one bike was blue and one was green.
8x8 card blank from Creative Crafting World.
Dark navy blue card is from a Hunkydory kit I won in a magazine prize draw.
Grey card is Tonic’s Craft Perfect in Pewter Grey which is embossed using a folder that was free with Love Cardmaking International magazine (issue 5).
Bicycle die was free in Paper craft Essentials magazine (issue 172) and is by Dies by Chloe.
Sentiment and backing plate is from The Paper Boutique Sentiments Vol XX.
Digi Kits are Daisy Trail Hobbies – Home From Home and Birthday by Victoria Nelson.
The challenge will close on Saturday 11th April at 1pm.
Don't forget that the CD Sunday Plus Challenge is now about making items using something printed from a craft CD Rom, USB or digital download. You can use other craft items on your card/project, such as a stamp or die, but you must include something printed from the new categories. In your blog post/Facebook entry you must give the name of the printed item you've used.
We also have a Facebook page if you don't have a blog - The CD Sunday Plus Challenge.
