CD Sunday - #2 – ‘Anything Goes’ using something from a craft CD - hosted by Jane

CD Sunday are revisiting 'Anything Goes' but this time hosted by Jane.

I have made a Birthday card this time instead of ATCs.  For some time now amongst a folder of photos of butterflies on my computer there has been a snap that I took myself in my own garden. This beautiful butterfly was visiting my Sedum flower heads. They were still in bud so there wasn't any pollen or nectar for him to find but he settled long enough for me to rush and get my camera. I am not sure of the breed but it is very similar to the spotted fritillary,  Here is the original photo:

I knew what background I wanted to use as it is one I have used before from MCS. I used it here:

The background came from MCS Watercolour World 1 CD.  Obviously, the colouring had to be changed and I had fun with colours and hues. So after some satisfying playing and then using my ACDSee graphics programme (CD based) I added the sentiment and the borders. I gave the butterfly one decoupaged layer.
Here is my card:

Hope you like the result.
Please come and join in with us at CD Sunday.  Please, please remember though to use something from a craft CD in the making of your project.  It is amazing the entries we receive that have no CD content at all. We even had an entry from someone who hadn't used a craft CD but told us which music CD was listened to whilst she worked.
Don't forget you can also enter by email or Facebook. Details are on the CD Sunday Blog here.



  1. Both are stunning Carol, I love the ACT and your photo look fabulous against the lovely backing paper you've used.

  2. Fabulous card, I love your butterfly picture sorry I don’t know the name, the background really goes with your photo.

  3. What a fantastic photo and I'm pleased the butterfly stayed still long enough for you to take the photo. It makes a lovely card.

  4. Beautiful butterfly photo as the focal point of your card, the tones in the background perfect with it
