CCT: Gems & Jewels "It's all about the presents"

It's Thursday already! CCT challenge this week is 'gems & jewels' to tie in with some Zoomz candy which is up for grabs. For details, hop on over and also to see all the other fab DT cards.

Was a bit pushed for time this week so went for a quick option using this cute doggy stamp from CC Designs.

The layout and folder card came about purely because those were the bits of card I had on my desk and the shape of the cardstock lent itself to being made into a folder. The other bits of card (left over from my Ismaki card) just happened to fit nicely without any trimming or cutting. So stuck it all together and coloured the image to match and voila.

The gems are the flower gems on the presents and the gem brads in the corner. Don't know why the colours look so washed out when I take them in daylight (I actually prefer to take them at night under my daylight bulb!)


  • Image: doggy plus sentiment from 'It's my birthday' CC Designs stamp set
  • Papers: left over bits from last card (BG)
  • Others: ribbon, flower gems and gem brads from stash.
Oh, and my 6 Shabby Chic stamps finally arrived today, yeah! So, if anyone else is waiting I think she's just slower (than usual!) at the moment. Hope you don't have to wait too long :) - that's the hard part isn't it?!!
