Travels Abroad CD Sunday Challenge

We had lovely entries for our Fox and friends challenge last,some really beautiful images of fox's, so thank you all who took part.

We still have the lovely Wynn with us as our guest for the month so do pop over to see what she has to show you this week.
This weeks choice is Christine's and her choice is Travels Abroad.
I have used a Debbie Moore CD called Art Deco Rome.
I have made a large tent fold card, printed out the image of the back ground and mounted on to the card, i have used a gold textured mirror card and used a tonic die to make a frame. I have printed out the lady,  cut her out and placed her over the frame, down the side i have used another tonic tag die and threaded the gold organza ribbon through it and added the sentiment.
I know you will all have lots of ideas for our challenge this week and i look forward to seeing them all and visiting you
