cd sunday - something beginning with D

Just popping back in to edit this post - as I forget to add the link to the CD Sunday blog - sorry ladies.

Good afternoon & isn't it good to see the sunshine?  I am keeping fingers crossed it will be reasonably good tomorrow (Saturday) too as I have plants to put in the garden.

The challenge at CD Sunday this week is "something beginning with D" - that makes it quite open but the mind keeps stopping around the same things.  Anyway I did come up with a "D" & have made a card;

My "D" is for Daffodils & Decoupage (although only a little bit!).  I used My Craft Studio CD "Just for You", Design set 7.

I used the daffodil background paper & one of the toppers. I didn't have a ready folded card to fit the background paper so I created one from a white A4 card & used it tent style, & used Distress Ink - Crushed Olive - around the edges of the bp.  When sorting the work on MCS I cropped the topper twice to have 2 copies of the bottom left corner, & from one of these I cut out the 3 daffodils & mounted them on sticky pads.  I had this really lovely yellow ribbon which I wrapped around the topper & bp before mounting it onto the base card & adding the 3-d flowers.  Some yellowy flat backed pearls were added at the base of several of the leaf bases.  The "happy birthday" was stamped using Distress Ink - Vintage Photo to match the leaves & fronds.

Thank you for stopping by & why not pop over to CD Sunday by clicking on the name at the start of this post, & see what others have created.  I am about to pop over there - so! I will see you there.
