CD Sunday - Scentimental

Time again for another new challenge over on the CD Sunday blog, and as it's the beginning of the month we have a sponsor. This month it's Jems Designs and the lovely ladies have given us a CD to play with, it's the gorgeous Scentimental CD, this is also the prize that's up for grabs too. I went for something a bit different this week with my card. Using the Grand Decorative Circles Dies from Spellbinders I cut out two of the largest circles in this lovely bright orange card. then glued the top together to make a card. I then cut the backing paper to match the shape and after sticking it to the base I went around the edge with some peeloffs that I had in my stash. Next using the smallest circle in the set I cut out a circle in a cream card. There is a section on the CD that has circular toppers on and this one fitted perfectly. From the embellishments on the CD I cut out the matching bottle of perfume, and the sentiment "Daughter", after shaping a little in my hand i used some glue gel to pop it onto the card. Finally I added some flowers with pearl in the centres some leaves and some swirls. As I was finishing making an envelope for this card, a friend turned up, fell in love with the card, and bought it off of me there and then. I had to take the photo quickly before she could take it.

This month we have Anne as our Guest for the month, and both Anne and the design team have made some gorgeous inspiration cards for you. Do pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at them, and why not join in as well, we all love to look at what you've made.

Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

What a striking card Sue and beautiful in those circles. I have had mine for ages and not cut anything with them yet which is shameful!
