CD Sunday Challenge - 'Seasons'

Hi everyone,  hope you are enjoying your days.  My card for the CD Sunday Challenge was made up from the Docrafts Tatty Teddy CD. Now, I hope the ladies will forgive me for thinking outside the box - although the theme is 'seasons' I was thinking of making a masculine theme card, and the cricketer made me think of the term CRICKET SEASON. But a flowery card is in the making!

I have not used the CD much, although some gorgeous toppers, I always seem to think they come out a little too cute for adults, and I don't have many children to make cards for!  I do blog hop frequently and came across a lovely blog called 'Made by Sandra', and I like how she takes elements and layers them up.  I feel it makes the card look more 'grown up', and so I thought I would give this a go.  So, finally, if you are still with me, here is my card :-)
The papers were chosen and cropped, and the tag was made using the digi punches, and the topper was laid on the tag, which saved a lot of fussy cutting.  All the elements were laid out onto an A4 sheet to print out, so quite economical.  The sentiment was also from the CD - and just a few diecuts and background stamping to complete the card.

Bye for now - Lynn x


  1. Love the layout Lynn and the cute teddy image. Thank you for joining us at CD Sunday. Wynn DT

  2. Cricket always makes me think of summer - "the sound of leather on willow" really says summer to me". You've made a gorgeous card, and it's a great way to use a digital crafting CD, making layers rather than a flat card

  3. A great card for the cd sunday challenge, cricket is very summery isn't it.
    Just wanted to say re the superimposing - you need a graphics programme like serif or mycraftstudio - you can't do it in the cdrom!

  4. I love this and the layering, good choice of paper too, I also agree with Linby, you should try Serif's craft artist, so easy to use and you can did it all within the program.
    thanks for joining us at Cd Sunday

  6. A great layout and I love that you have gone with cricket season. My dear Dad used to play cricket at the weekends when I was growing up so this evoked memories of happy times.
