You're The Best!

I bought the DoCrafts Forever Friends Best Of British CD recently, but haven't really had a lot of time to have much of a play.  Its full of yummy papers, embellishments and characters to design with, and everything on this card (except the mirror card obviously) was printed from the CD - papers, bows, the lot!  I've then cut out and layered up as you would with any other paper kit, the only layers that I didn't cut separately are the flags on red where I put the "You're the Best" sentiment overlapping the two.  Its a fun CD - I just need some more time to play! :-)

  2. Heee, how cute is your wee bear!
    Thanks for your nice comments on my Christmas card - the stamp is from Marianne Designs...

  3. Your wee bear is adorable, and I think the bows add that cutesy (not a real word) feel to it. Thanks for joining us at Mema's Crafts and sharing your talent.

  4. Hi Mandy, this is great and those bows look real. Even if you're not patriotic this is the year to use all the red white and blue and you've done it to great effect.
    Many thanks for joining us at CD Sunday and we hope you continue to come over and see what we are up to.

  5. Brilliant card. I have never used digital embellishments before. I didn't know they could look so effective... maybe I am a convert now lol. Thanks for joining us over at Poodles Parlor this week.
