Card from a CD

I don't have these photos in the correct order and I don't know how to change them. I also need to work on my photo taking abilities. The pictures don't make these cards look as nice as they really are. Anyhow, these are from a tutorial from Stampin' Mama (Love her!!!) for a CD card. I made 2 of them from the Apple Cider Paper, River Rock, Chocolate Chip, and Old Olive Cardstock. The stamps used are from various sets. I was experimenting. I needed a couple thank you cards. This one is for my good friend, Cindy, to thank her for the beautiful silver bell necklace she gave me for Christmas. She had a rough holiday because her mother passed away right before the holiday so it was very sad for her. We both have bells and they connected us while she was 500 miles away with her family for the funeral.
This is the inside of the card I will send to my sister. It says Thank you and then "From the bottom of my heart". The thank you is from All Holidays and the heart is from A Light Heart. I stamped in really rust.

This is what the card looks like open. I used a piece of old olive ribbon to attach the 2 cds.



And this is the photo that should be first as it is the front of the card. I used a flower from one of the Apple Cider Cardstock pieces. After I finished I decided to swipe around the edges with close to cocoa ink and add a few stickles to the front to add some bling.
Thanks for looking in on me today. I hope to do better in 2008, both with more frequent blogging and with better photos. (not sure how I will do that, but will try). I also hope to keep trying new techniques. Thank you to Erika Martin for her tutorials.

I'm back with a link for you! http://allistamps.blogspot.com/2007/03/allis-photo-101.html is a great tutorial about taking photos. I don't have a lamp so do mine by a window in daylight (which gives me about two hours each day to get my pic at the moment).

Anyway, love your CD cards - great idea!
