.ring a roses

Not your traditional wedding card i know, i was trying to create a modern twist on it. Also i have to appologise for the poor quality of of the pic!! I have used the "Beautiful Dreamer" CD from the Glitter Girls. The b/p is from Dovecraft and the roses are cut on a s/cameo and coloured with promarkers, not at all sure of the sentiment, looks to hard in black i may have to change it for a gray, i think that would suit much better. I hope you like it, to be entered into CD Sunday's challenge "ring a roses".

I love this little image, it was from a decoupage sheet and i did not need to use all the layers. The backing paper is from the s.w.a.l.k CD rom from Crafter's companion. The card around the mouse is from kanban, a left over piece after cutting out the circle. i will enter this card into the CD Sunday challenge All sewn up. I hope you like it .
