A card with no challenge!!

I don't know what has happened to my mind today - I decided I must make a card for one of the challenges.  But what to use?  Well! my decision is most probably what caused me to lose my mind.  Not literally of course.

I decided to use the CD that was part of my prize from CD Sunday challenge last week.  What better item to use & I spent time looking at all the possibilities.  
Anyway back to my card. Having made my decision on which design to use I printed off all the elements I required.  Then I set to & made the card.  The reason for starting this post was to show the card & link it to the appropriate challenge - CD Sunday (see I thought it would be nice to use the CD from the prize - OK I won't mention the prize anymore - I promise).  I popped into the blog to check if I still had time to enter & found I had produced the wrong card & in any case had already entered the challenge & was in fact second to do so.  Now! which challenge does this card fit?  I had, as you will see shortly, made a card with pyramage.  I checked the challenge blogs that I watch regularly & found it.  Stamptacular Sunday with the theme - "Pile it On" - great!  Oops - then the mind woke up - magic word - STAMPtacular.  My card had no stamping on it.  Anyway - here is the card I have made  for a non-existent challenge.  It will make a very nice birthday card for a friend or relative later.

As you can see I made an easel card.  Again during the course of making it I changed my design idea.  I was going to do a double easel but then decided the little oval pyramage would fit better laying flat.  I trimmed the right hand flap to match the position where the easel would sit & stuck it down flat then put the pyramage on top.

Now to look carefully again at blog challenges at get my mind back in gear.
Thank you for popping by.
