CD Sunday Challenge 1 - Wings and Things


Hi everyone, well today's the launch of Wendy's brand new challenge blog CD Sunday Challenge!
The first theme is 'Wings & Things' which should give you loads of choices for using your CDs. Will you go for birds, butterflies, fairies (like me) or something completely different?
Whatever you decide on, we'd love to see your finished creations, so please try and join in with us. If you need a little bit of inspiration, try checking out the DT cards, they're just amazing!
I made a silly mistake with this by deciding to tint  the punched edge with my Promarkers. It looked OK at the time, but it has bled rather nastily now, probably due to using pearlescent paper (something I shall have to remember for the future) 

Card Details:
* Image - My Craft Studio 'Walk in Wonderland'
* Punch - Martha Stewart deep edge 'Garden Trellis'
* Everything else from my stash

If you're anything like me, you have lots of CDs that hardly ever get used (I usually seem to forget about them until after I've made a card!) so I'm really looking forward to getting in the habit of using all those beautiful images, papers and embellishments that I'd forgotten I had, if you're the same, why not join in?
Maybe you already use lots of CDs in your crafting, if so, why not share the end results with us?
Either way the DT would love to see what you all manage to create and don't forget to let us know which CD you used......we may just have to add it to our wishlists!
