CD Sundays challenge #8 - Birthday

Over at CD Sundays we are celebrating our 9th birthday, and we are celebrating in style with a very special challenge. Our theme, surprisingly enough, is BIRTHDAYS and we are offering a very special prize, that any crafter would love, so please do come along and join the party! All you need to do is create a birthday card that includes at least 1 element from a CD. It might just be a sentiment or a backing paper, it might be the whole card, or it might be CD elements mixed with other things like stamping, as I have done here.

All the printed elements come from the Hot Off The Press CD "5,400 Tags & Art". It's a very valuable resource, I always spend hours browsing when I go to use it, and what's more it comes bundled with a second CD packed with tea bags folding papers and designs. I don't know whether it is still available but it's well worth looking out for.

I added a background stamped with various stamps from a Leonie Pujol set and The Gentleman Crafter's set, echoing the colours of the printing and trying to recreate the fun of a party - perhaps with a few fireworks!


  1. the background stamping is beautifully toned to match the tags and perfect for any celebration great card Jane

  2. Fabulous stamped background and love all the elements especially the little buttons
