Zodiac Card

Evening everyone

The challenge over at the CD Sunday Challenge Blog this week is Zodiac.  Now this is not something that normally interests me - I don't even read my horoscope - so the theme is definitely out of my comfort zone.  However, I then remembered that there was something zodiac themed on Rob Addam's cd "Big Cards" so thought I would give it a go.  My own star sign is Libra so that was what I chose to use on this card.

I made the black card base from smooth skin truly black card from Craftsite and layered more black card and gold card before adding the sun ray backing paper from the cd.  The corner zodiac circle embellishments and the layered topper are also from the cd.

So there you have it - my first ever zodiac themed card.

Thankyou for visiting my blog.
