We're singing and dancing at Craft Your Days Away!

Sooooo, it's time for challenge number 19 at CYDA. We have a fabulous challenge for you chosen by my lovely teamie Mel, our theme this time is 'Music and Dance' so loads of scope. We are also running a DT call alongside this challenge, please pop over to CYDA to find out more.

Our challenge is being sponsored by the fabulous SJ from Little Musings. One lucky winner will win the whole set of music digis shown below called Acceptable in the 80's and a set of their choice! Please do come and join in the fun and check out the gorgeous creations made by my lovely team mates.

So onto my DT card, SJ from Little Musings very kindly gave the DT the above digi set to have a play with, thank you SJ. I have used the fab cassette digi image shown above, available to purchase here and some gorgeous Whiff of Joy papers. I made some faux buttons using a Cuttlebug star die to cut 2 stars out of paper and then pierced 2 holes in each star to resemble button holes and then threaded some twine through. I have held back on embellishing the card to make it look more modern and I love the image so much I used it twice ;-)

Papers - Whiff of Joy
Cardstock - Bazzill Kraft & some scraps of corrugated card
Sentiment -Tiny Sentiments by Craftwork Cards
