Musical celebrations

Hi there,

I had this CD put to one side for a while but kept forgetting to use it, so I finally anaged to remember, and came up with a birthday card using House Mouse images from my CD-Rom. I am sure evrybody has some old CD's somewhere that no longer work - my advice would be to clen the fingerprints off before taking a potograph though! oops.

 Wen I got the card blank out I noticed there was a hole cut from the centre already. Well the design sheet tht I had printed had several different ideas of the same image. The hole in the card helped me decide which version I wanted to use. So I overlapped the hole with the CD, and placed a circular image in the centre. I die-cut the other image using X-cut scalloped circle die.

I used the mini card to adorn the top of the CD and wrote a brief sentiment inside, and then layered up with flowers and a butterfly. There is a handmade paper flower created using a Creative Dies spiral flower die.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafting by Design - corners, borders and frames (the CD frames the central image)
polkadoodle - Winter Birthday (doughnuts seem to be a staple in winter)
MMM #88 Winter Birthday
MTTC #388 Winter Birthday

Thanks for looking,

Hugz Tinz

PS I will leave you with some fun pictures of the crows:
