CD Sunday - Quotations

Yes it is me already - & it is still Sunday.

The challenge over at CD Sunday this week is Quotations.  So there should be lots & lots to choose from then.

I eventually chose the following quotation;

I had already had a look through some CD's for inspiration & had found a rather nice garden, the quotation then came to mind, & my choice was made.  The CD was Joanna Sheen's Royal Horticultural Society Collection & the image was from CD2 the Beautiful Gardens section.

I made an easel card covering the base card with the background paper from the selection.  The main image I printed twice, cut the image from the frame & around the arch & placed it over the other one on sticky pads. Then out of the blue I decided to give it an acetate dome cover. Unfortunately this means that you can just make out my reflection whilst taking the photo.  :)
The quotation was cut out in an oval & I used 3 little flowers as my easel stopper held in place under the quotation.

Here is a close up of the main image showing the acetate dome.

Thank you for stopping by my blog I hope you enjoyed your visit.
