CD Sunday - 'Anything goes' - chosen by Carol (me)

Good Morning
We run a strict challenge choosing rota system at CD Sunday and my turn to choose the challenge has come around again. It doesn't seem that long since my last choice back in April.
Anyway for this time I have chosen something that I think will appeal to all - 'Anything goes'. It couldn't be simpler AS LONG AS SOMETHING FROM A CD IS USED SOMEWHERE ON THE CREATION.  I have said it now and I won't keep on.

Hopefully we all like the work we produce - otherwise what is the point - but am I allowed to say that I love this card. It just seemed to go so well - be so simple but I hope appealing. I bought the panda die quite a while ago and as soon as it arrived  I made up two pandas. One I sent to a friend and the other was kept in my album of dies ready to use.  I also have one of those 'go to' CD's for oriental themes and I took it from there. The expression on the pandas face just says Oops Sorry!! doesn't it. So it had to be a belated wishes card.  I had the idea of having him peeking out from -  or rather hiding in -  the bamboo so I just needed the right background and found it on my CD.
Here is the card I have been waffling on about:
The CD used is my  'Japanese Papers' CD. The background is the green with the moon and some of the bamboo (the paler more silvery colour). The rest of the bamboo and of course the panda are die cuts. I used one of my graphic programmes to add the words and sentiment. Simples as they say.

I hope you enjoy my card and I haven't bored you.  Any comments you wish to leave are always appreciated and I look forward to visiting your blogs and leaving my comments. Please come and join us - with 'Anything goes' there is no excuse.


  1. Fantastic combination of dies and papers Carol, love the oriental theme and that fantastic panda

  2. A fantastic card Carol, that Panda looks a little shy peeping out from behind the bamboo.

  3. A great way to apologise for missing a birthday! You're right about the panda's expression and it was clever to 'hide' him among the bamboo.

  7. Not bored at all Carol. This is a great card you've created. I agree, the expression on his face is perfect for the sentiment on your card.
