Anyway, onto the Design Team creations:
Ruth: I've taken the liberty of using "Moving On (Up)" by M People for my card and I made it for a colleague who was moving onto pastures new.... All paperbased elements including the little alphies are from Back To Nature and I've added some organza ribbon and acetate from my stash.
Kris: My song title is "Baby, It's Cold Outside" - an oldie which will surely date me! I combined the striped paper and stampie from Back To Nature with the snowflake paper from Jingle Jangle (had to make it look cold!) I colored her with Prismas and OMS, computer generated the sentiment and added a few jewels.
Brenda: "Spread Your Wings" by Queen. Papers and large butterfly from Back To Nature Heritage collection. Butterfly cut out and heat embossed with iridescent powder.
Lou - Card 1: I know this one is a bit of a cheat but I'm still going to use it . . . "Happy Birthday" by Stevie Wonder. All papers from the "Back To Nature" CD - picnic brights and I have added some spira flowers with gems for added bling!
Lou - Card 2: "A Good Heart" by Fergal Sharkie was my inspiration for my 2nd project for my S-I-L's 40th birthday. Again those gorge picnic brights papers from the "Back To Nature" CD, decorated with both spira and Stacker flowers.
Boni: "Who Let The Dog's Out?" by Baha Men - Back To Nature cd using the Alphies to create a collaged background page then layering and popping the "dogs". Charm is by American Traditional Designs Lil' Charms.
Kerry: "Puppy Love" by Donny Osmond. All papers are from Back To Nature except some yellow card for the heart. Just added an eyelet, a couple of brads and some ribbon.
Dolly: "Peacock Suit" by Paul Weller. Papers and image 'Shake a Tailfeather' collection from the Back to Nature CD. Decoupaged the peacock body and cut out a second set of feathers and slotted them in with a craft knife for extra definition.
Kate: "Love is like a butterfly" - Dolly Parton. I've used the Heritage papers and the gorgeous butterfly which I mounted on a nesties circle on the folded back front panel of the card. I embossed the butterfly and the lettering with holographic powder to add a subtle iridescence to its wings.
Nettie: My song title is....."What's New Pussycat" by you guessed Tom Jones. I have used acetate for the main part of my card so please excuse the picture. I have used the gorgeous Candy papers and added a little glossy accents to the letters and flowers.
Hope you've been inspired by these creations! Remember, you have until Sunday 17 January at 12noon GMT to enter and please leave a direct link to your blog to help us find your entry. Good luck! We now have Mr Linky so please use him but don't worry if you've used the comments section as we will still look at those too!
