CD Sunday 'Summer Vacation'

Good Morning from a very hot sunny Cyprus. It's certainly 'Summer Vacation' time here and at CD Sunday this is the theme that Meg, one of our newbies on the design team, has set as the challenge. This is very appropriate for this time of the year. I know it's Winter 'down under' but I'm sure they will enjoy bringing out a bit of sunshine too.
Last time Carol asked for 'Once Upon a Time' creations. We had some lovely designs and some memory joggers of those delightful stories which were family favourites. She's busy sorting out her winner and top three so you'll have to wait til the next challenge to see if you are one of them.. The winners of the 'No Images' are ready tho and Sue's choice is up on the blog now ( link in sidebar) 
This time for your inspiration I went to a Joanne Sheen CD 'Holly Hill Pond' CD 2. I love the images on this CD. The artwork is wonderful. I started with A4 card stock folded to A5 and covered it with designer paper from the CD.
I place the image centrally and then added some embellishments. I made the rosette from the same designer paper and added a flowery button. I made the bunting and added it to string and as it fell onto the card I left it hanging this way .....hope you think it's OK.  I had some matching card stock and made the sentiment banner, adding an extra small image from the CD.
I hope you enjoy this challenge as much as I did. Please pop over to CD Sunday and take a peep at the other designs by the team and give them some love....especially our newbies.
Have a good week and try to keep cool if you are here in Cyprus and don't forget the sun cream!!
