Altered CD hanging

This project started with a need to wish a friend on her new venture. She was opening a store and i din't want give flowers or a simple card and then decided I will combine the 2, and make an altered cd hanging which can greet her customers everyday at the shop!


The cd has 4 layers, corrugated cardboard,PP cicle,silver doily (almost not visible) and lastly lace at the back!!!
 Instead of the regular good luck sentiment, i had the sentiment"Enjoy the Journey" as the focal point and worked around it.
The handmade blooms in shades of blue gave a cool,refreshing feel with a cute little heat embossed pink butterfly near it! Lots of leaves, flourishes and branches give it a lovely floral bouquet appearance! some bling and a cute little bow completed the CD make over.


I then pleated a white lace around the back of the cd and hung some silver bells from the base. For the top hanging, i strung some pearls and colored beads that matched the blooms.


The other side of the cd looks pretty too with lace behind,so i just covered the center with layers of CS and stamped the handmade seal and finished it off with my signature!

I hope my friend likes it and it adds color to her store  and greets her customers too! How about you all???? Do you like it...please do leave your comments.
Thanks for stopping by.
