Use what you have...

Recently I've been buying CR-Roms of images for cardmaking, I've been mesmerised by the wonderful things people are creating with them.  But it's not been happening for me and I have to accept that maybe they are not how I choose to make my cards.  Then again, it's no good just giving up so I'm trying to make a few cards this week from CDs that are lurking on my desk.  This is from Viva la Divas, a Joanna Sheen CD with vintage images and sayings, you can customise the sayings which is what I've done here.  DP is Basic Grey, panel behind image is Cuttlebugged and inked, ribbon and string lace from stash.  What do you think?
My card is for the following challenges:
Pile it On - funny sentiment or image
Divas by Design - anything goes

Crafty Catz - quote or sentiment
Digis with Attitude - make us laugh
The Crazy Challenge - anything goes
Dutch Dare - sketch


  1. This is fab Anne, love the layout and the sentiment gave me a giggle. I do like this cd, I think it's going to be very useful. Jo x

  2. Lovely card Anne, love the colour combination. I also have loads of CD's and sometimes struggle to use them, perhaps I need to give it another go.
