This is my entry for two Challenges
CD Sunday...Mixed Bouquet
Ooh La La...Summer Flowers

The background paper is from Ooh La La CD...Femme Fatale, the flowers and paper on the vase are from MCS.. Paper Flower Expert. The vase and fern are stamps from CaroLines.
The papers and flowers were printed on Conqueror Champagne paper, which give a golden glow.
The vase was stamped and embossed with gold tinsel powder. The ferns were stamped with Pearlescent Ivy Brilliance ink.
Apologies for the lighting but it shows the gold tinge quite well!

This week's CD Sunday Challenge is to use a digistamp as well as images from a CD.
This is my entry

The papers are from Joanna Sheen's CD Eastern Treasures.
The digistamp (flower) is one of my Petal Power digis...DIG001, coloured altered to purples.
I cut the doily die (Martha Stewart) using the Cuttlebug and glued it to white card. Trimmed so points were at the edge. I rounded the corners of the white card and also the other bamboo paper. The latter was glued to lilac card.
The flower digi was printed on to vellum, the pieces cut out and made up according to intsructions. A gemstone made the flower centre. Triangular purple gemstones were glued in some of the doily spaces (what else can you do with triangle gemstones?) and a thin line of glitter applied to the outside of the doily using a Quickie glue pen.
Butterflies punched from the same paper as doily and glued to corners.

This week's CD Sunday Challenge is...Say It With Scallops
Here is my entry

The papers are from Peerless Designs..Floral Elegance.
I cut the scalloped square with my Accucut machine. I used Photoshop to create a scalloped circle from one of the papers, imported it to Serif CraftArtist and resized it. It was then cut into four...each quarter was glued to black card which was then glued to the scalloped square (glued on to black card).
The flower is one of my Digistamps, Petal Power 6, printed on to vellum, made according to instructions.
Small pink pearls were then glued around the inner square and four butterflies punched from the same paper.
