Altered CD Case and Card

Hi there! I'm not sure how long it's going to take to get through this month's birthday list, but this card makes one more checked off of the list! I used both the Clean and Simple Saturday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts (sketch) and the Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoast to use a bow on your CAS card. This card was a lot of fun to make....I think I might make several more of these in different colors! I used the Prima designer paper scraps leftover from the altered CD case below which I made last weekend.

I have also used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Crafty Pad: Embossing;
Delightful Challenges: Embossing;
Stamp Insanity: It's all about me, me, me! (This card has everything I love..paper piercing, Victoria EF, Glimmer Mist, Satin Ribbon, Pearls, butterflies....can't get any better than that in my book!!);
Tuesday Throwdown: Clean and Simple.

Here is a close up which shows a bit of the "Pearl" Glimmer Mist on the "Victoria" embossed background. The butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart punch and the pearls are Zva Creative. The May Arts satin bow above was tied with a Bow Easy.

This is a brown metal CD case (with a pink zipper) which I found at Michael's for 50 cents...cha ching!!! For instructions on how I decorated it, please see the "Time With Angie" post on the Our Daily Bread designs blog from earlier in the week. The scripture verse is from "Sing To The Lord", the designer paper is Prima "Annabelle", the pearls are Zva Creative, and the May Arts satin ribbon was tied with a Bow Easy.

Thanks for putting up with the "birthday card binge" this weekend!! Who knows....I might just get back to holiday projects before the month is over!!

God Blessings to you!!!
