Bah! Humbug! GD Spot #5 - Presents

Well today is my last posting for the month of October and my guest designer spot for the Bah!Humbug! ladies, I have thoroughly enjoyed doing my bit and hopefully you will have liked at least a little of the cards done.
Now on to this weeks offering, the photo was taken in the evening so the colour isn't right and it looks a bit odd. I decided to use a non christmassy image and dress it up a bit, it is from MCS and I've added stickles to the ribbons to bling it up a bit. The die cut bauble is from a set I bought last year and never used and the ribbon is coloured with the ever present promarkers, the backing paper is from a pad from DCWV and has been well used this year with everything being matted onto gold mirri.

CD Sunday - No Embellishments

Good morning all, it's another Sunday and for us it can only mean one thing, another challenge from us at CD Sunday, and this week it's No Embellishments.

We are quite excited this week as we have two new team members, we have Wendy from Crafting Purple Crazy amd we have Carol from Carol's Parchment Place. Both have very different styles so pop over to their blogs and check them out, they have both produced something to give you a bit of inspiration this week so hope you'll all join in and make their first week a bumper one.

Now onto my card, when I first started to make cards I was a bit afraid of using embellishments as I was unsure of where to put them and if they looked right but now I love them so this challenge really had me wondering what on earth I was going to do. I did start a card using MCS but it just wasn't right so I have put that on one side and I will bling it up a bit, one of my other teamies used the Ooh la la cd - Dreams of Tranquility, this reminded me that I bought this to do a card for someones 60th birthday and had forgotten I had it so, out it came and what you see is the result. So thank you Christine for reminding me to practice what I preach and dust off the unused cd's.

This image is called Elemental Ballet Water and I think being such a dramatic image it is easy to make a card with so very little on it, the backing papers are part of the collection and I have used a very famous quote which just seems to fit perfectly, a bit of gold mirri and it's done.

I do hope you will join us this week and keep watching as we have some fabulous sponsors coming up, the next one on 7th November is one you will all want.
