CDAC PC Round 4

Woohoo! The 4th part of the Progressive Challenge at CDAC has been revealed this morning and this is the DT card I made for my image, McGonagall by Simply Betty Stamps.

Team A have the pleasure of bringing you some gorgeous samples for these images for this round.


Halloween images are not something I have ever dealt with as it isn’t really celebrated in the UK. It was fun to work with such a great image though and to work with a different theme than I was used to.

I used a sketch for my card from Sweet Sunday Sketches for the layout covering the card front with a glittery purple paper from My Minds Eye Penny Lane collection. I added a section of stripy paper from the range as it picks out the purple, green and brown from the image. I used a Martha Stewart punch on the edge and added a purple elasticated trip on the bottom. I picked it up from a haberdashery department and thought it was pretty especially as it has metallic threads running through it too.

Another 1st for me is the concertina or lollipop flower. I have seen them used all over blogland but not made one myself. The 1st one I made I had to ditch a I hadn’t used a long enough strip of cardstock. However I had another go, punching and pleating until I had a flower I could be proud of. I added  a circle centre which had been cut from another of the sheets in the pad.
