Easy Elegance - CD Sunday


I always try to enter the weekly challenge at CD Sunday, as I have an ever-growing collection of CD and DVD-Roms, and love the chance to play with them.

The theme this week is 'Easy Elegance', which isn't my usual sort of style, but I really enjoyed making my card.  My new Iris Folding CD-Rom by AnnaMarie Designs provided the main dress design, which I made up with glitter and pearlescent paper strips.  The bodice, backing papers and card for the flowers/leaves came from the Papermania DVD-Roms (using Digital Designer software).  The pearls and gems are from stash.  The sentiment is a Kanban stamp - blue Le Plume pen used to colour it.  I made a base card from an A3 sheet, as this is quite a large design - and the Digital Designer software was used again to make a matching insert.
