I found a new challenge site last week whilst blog hopping, well, its a new challenge site to me anyway! It's called CD Sunday challenge and basically you have to use something from a crafting CD. And as I own a fair few, I thought I'd give it a whirl!

The current challenge is:

In Stitches

And I have slightly cheated by making faux stitching around the edges of the card and also one of the Nesties layers. Which is probably neater than if I tried it on the sewing machine! I've used an image from Candy Doodles and the backing papers from Love and Cherish both by Polkadoodles. The cupcake I've printed at A5 size and its layered too, so one full cupcake can be printed onto one sheet of A4 card.

I've added some glitter glue to the bow and also around the Nesties layer. With a bit of inking, the card is completed! I was going to add a sentiment, but could not decide what to add or where it should be placed. So one will be added before I use it. Probably.

  • All paperbased items: Candy Doodles and Love and Cherish CD's from Polkadoodles
  • Everything else: My stash
