New beginnings

Just a very quick card as i wanted to try out some embossing powder that i have not used before, it's from Ranger and has been around for some time now but i have only just got round to using it.
The stamps are from Inkadinkado called Good morning, a set of nine in all. I have stamped them with versafine, i did use memento first but that did not good detail, i then used the Rangers embossing pearl in pearl blue and i do like it , the colour is really nice and has a metallic sheen and with it being so fine it has kept all the stamps details in tact. The card is made using craft card in a 6x6, also used some washie tape down the sides.

Food Glorious food , Wynn

Hi everyone and welcome to a new challenge at  CD Sunday.
The theme this time around has been picked for you by Wynn and it's.....Food glorious Food.
For my card i have used Crafters companion's flower fairies and friends and House mouse.
I have used lilac card for the base and to mount the main image, incidentally i got this at Lidl, a multi-coloured pad of pastels, 25 sheets at 24x34cm and 270gsm and only cost £3, a bargain i think.
I have compiled everything in craft artist and printed out then layered up and ever conscious of postage it is fairly flat.
The team have come up with some great inspiration for you, so do pop over and visit them to find out how they do things too.
I look forward to visiting you and please remember you must use something from a CD no matter how small to be eligible for any prize that may be on offer.

Get Well

A get well card for a friend who is going to have a hip replacement soon.
This was compiled in craft artist and printed out, i duplicated some of the elements so i could make them decoupaged, I have used a Polka Doodles CD called Work & play collection 1. Love these Cd's, you can do so much with them or just make a quick card if your in a hurry.

I am entering into the following challenges
