DT card for Crafting with Dragonflies # 25: Use a CD, either as a Card or on the Card





Hi everyone....
Our next challenge over at Crafting with Dragonflies really is a bit of a challenge.....
Think round, think CD's...
What we would like to see is using the actual CD as your focus, not what's in it.....So you could make a card out of the CD, or anything else you can think of, break it up and mosaic it, use the round shape to your advantage, use it as a clock or anything .....


I used the CD as the actual card...I used two Cd's joined them with a card hinge, and glued DP on both sides.....I also used the cute Baby Animals image from Eureka...
The papers are from my stash and I always colour with Pro Markers.....hope you like it
Blessings Hilde

This is a quick and easy way to create a wonderful card. Now I normally love colouring, but have been trying out the pre coloured options and love it also...
I sponged the edges and matted the images on a contrasting coloured card. The matting behind the sentiment is a punch from SU, i added a small bit of hessian behind it.... All the bits and bobs are from my stash

Card 2:  Image from Sponsor ADFD
I do enjoy colouring the ADFD images, they are one of my favourites, I always use Pro Markers for my colouring....I used paper s from my stash, lots of bling, part of a fence die, bird and butterfly die and punch, the leaves are a die and the rose came on a per metre gauze thing, so you just cut as you need them...Hope you like it.

DT card for Brown Sugar # 88: CAS

Hi all, hope you had a great week, it's Brown Sugar time again, and we are asking you to create a
CAS card
I am not sure if I went just a little overboard on this one, but I had a bit of the fence lying around and then I saw the little bit of an offcut of the beehive print, and so it went... but I did tone down the embellishment to a minimum....(cough) Allright, I do think that maybe CAS is not my thing...now it's over to you...go to the main blog and see what you can win, and have a go at a CAS card, you will most likely do much better than me...
