March's Debbees CD Challenge

Well I downloaded these sheets from Debbees Site a few Days ago, and have done one of my ideas, and am working on the second.
Deb provides all you need for each challenge, you just decide how to use it!! Its a little know site, but if you have been to any of the big craft shows in the UK, you will probably have seen Deb without realising it. Recall a Bee wandering round the shows? Well That's Deb a wonderfully creative lady.
Here's the first of two cards I have made with her free download challenge for this month.......
I used 3 of the papers, and matted them one on top of the other, then I used the insert and adjusted it in My Craft studio, so I had a circular central image as opposed to the oval, Deb had provided.
I printed the fans off separately, on photo paper, and then decoupaged them over the circular centre.
I used a Spellbinders Holly Motif die for the sentiment, and stamped and distressed it with Tim Holtz's Milled Lavender Distress Ink. Then I cut the Border off so I was left with the central panel.
I added some purple gems to the corners of various layers, and the fans, and used some purple Brads and Ribbon on opposite ends of the panel.
I really do like the way this has turned out, and hope you do too.

Hugs, xx

Lou
