CD Sunday - Exotic Birds and Blooms

This is the first of my DT cards for CD Sunday that I have had to make since I broke my arm.  I printed out an image from Japanese Papers - pattern source book Nature 2 CD - directly to parchment. Working one handed on parchment isn't too difficult.   I embossed where appropriate and then stitched to the background using toning beads.  The flowers were some I had in my stash.  I am never sure about red and pink together but I think it works on this occasion.

I was so pleased to be crafting again that I made some ATC's on the same theme using the same CD.


  1. Hi Carol

    Lovely card, and well done making it with one hand, not easy I know when I had my hand and arm in plaster,. I love your take on the theme this week

  2. I really like those designs and good to see a different take on the theme.
