CD Christmas card

Bah! humbug Challenge 7 for this week is to use a CD or DVD. And Sparkle creations 2011 Christmas card week 12 is a colour challenge - to use light blue, dark blue, white and silver. Rainbow lady's challenge 140 is to use omething from a CD or an old CD/case, so I'm also linking for that.

I dabbed denim and stonewashed alcohol inks on to the CD and just added a glittery snowflake in the middle and parts of another glittery snowflake cut for the corners of the card.

Because of the flash reflection with the CD it was very difficult to get a photo - this is the best I could do:

and I did manage to get a scan, but it cut off the corners and looks duller than it does irl, but you can see the effect of the alcohol inks a bit better, although these have more of a silvery look really:

This is also for:

PaperPlay 7: add shine
Frosted designs fabulous Friday: no patterned paper
Top tip Tuesday 23: bling it on

As this card has white space and white snowflakes on it, it's also for my own CHNC challenge 8: the white stuff - if you haven't yet discovered my Christmas challenge blog, why not go over there and join in - I'd love to see your creations.

I am celebrating with some candy - you can read about it and sign up here
