Stepping Out

The challenge at CD Sunday is 'Stepping out ' and it didn't take me long to think that I might find something suitable of the Crafter's Companion Frou Frou CD. This is a lovely CD, but I really don't like Crafter's Companion's CD interface. The categories are meaningless to me ( what do 'couture collections' and 'card companions' actually mean?), and you have to trawl through a lot of folders to find a single design, often with just colour variations. What a shame, as a lot of the content is very good. 

Luckily, when I bought this CD it came with a copy in the Craft Artist format and this made it relatively easy to find a couple of images of dressed-up women.  I cropped them just above the knees to focus on the legs and shoes 'stepping out'.  The frame and flower were die-cut, using Fancy Pants Park Bench paper, and I added a charm and a stamped sentiment(Clearly Besotted).

I'd also like to enter:

I just love that image and the frame around it really makes us focus on those, far too gorgeous, legs!

A great image Marina and looks great how you have framed it.

Thanks so much for joining our birthday celebrations at Allsorts, good luck with the big prize draw and don't forget the DT have more prizes on their own blogs.

Wow! I love what you've done to this image. I have this CD and although there are some great images on it the categories are misleading I agree. So pleased you shared this fab card with us at CD Sunday. Wynn DT

So clever, fashionable and stylish. I love this design idea and card!

Your imagination has no limits Marina! What a fantastic card, a sure winner! I am glad that I am not the only one who doesnt like Crafter Companion cd's. They are very user unfriendly. The last one that I bought was the Therwell one and I told myself that it was the last one as apart from having to trawl through so much to find an image, I find the images do not print well, unlike almost every other cd out there! Sorry for the moan! Michelle x

What a great card Marina. Very clever and effective. I agree with you about the interface. I have a couple of CD's I don't use because of this.
Thank you for joining in with us.

Very clever idea Marina and I have to agree with you about CC cd's, but I do keep trying them as they do have some lovely images.
Thanks for sharing with us at CD Sunday this time.
