Toot-toot!

The current challenge at CD Sundays is "Things with wheels". Normally I would go straight to my La Pashe CDs for this theme, as they have so many super images from Teddies on bikes to crazy lorry drivers. But several of the DT have made fab cards with some of my favourite La Pashe designs, and anyway I wanted to have an excuse to browse through some of my other CDs.

Eventually I settled on this sweet topper and border from the CD "The Rachel Anne Miller Collection". I wasn't too keen on the backing papers designed to go with it, so I picked out a couple that had been magazine freebies - recently I went through  pile of old, unloved mags, ripped out the papers and stored them in a folder so I wouldn't feel obliged to always use them together, kit-style. For embellishments, I used cut some wheels using the X-cut Gears die set, going for a pastel yellow instead of the dark and metallic colours I usually choose, to give them a fresher, younger look. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

  1. Hi Jane. I love the image you have used. I used it for CD Sunday back in 2014. We did a theme from Tots to Teens. The yellow cogs look super.
    Thank you for your visit to my Blog for Ooh La La especially as you haven't officially started. Congratulations and have fun.
    Hugs
