Time to relax

This is my entry for this weeks CD Sunday challenge, the theme is 'Go Green' and I knew exactly which image I wanted to use as soon as I saw the theme, the only problem was I didn't know if I would manage to find the time to make a card as my Dad is still in hospital and I am taking Mum to visit him every other day at the moment.  I have managed to make this quite simple card:


As you can see I have chosen to use the colour green, the image is from Joanna Sheen's Silly Summer House Mouse Decoupage collection and the backing paper is my CD element - it is from the new House Mouse Triple CD Collection.  I have embossed the green card stock and punched the edge with a Fiskars edge punch.  The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment was on the decoupage sheet.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The CD Sunday Challenge - Go Green
Crafts and Me Challenge 134 - Lots of Layers
Moving Along with the Times - Embossing
The House that Stamps Built Challenge 522 - Fur, Fins or Feathers
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge 172 - Stripes and/or Circles
Love to Scrap Challenge 6 - Colour my World - Primary
Oldie but a Goodie  Challenge - Inspired by a Song (Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Relax) (Decoupage over 6 months old)

Well, that's it from me for today, it's been raining and blowing a gale here again - will summer ever arrive, I'm beginning to wonder.

Thank you for calling.

I'm not sure how I missed this last week but I think it's fab. The image is so strong it doesn't need too much embelishment.
