Altered CD Birthday Card

I made this birthday card for a very special lady who has a birthday coming up later this month.I used 3 cd's. The circles were all cut from the george cartridge. The flower was cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and more cut in white at 2 1/2" mirror image ane embossed just the front flower with the cuttlebug swiss dot folder and then cut the printed paper @ 2" regular. The flower opens up and I wrote a message on it. The flourish which I used for the flower stem was cut from Accent Essentials at 1 1/2". The green scallop was cut with a Marvy punch and then embossed with cuttlebug. The scalloped frame on the cover was cut from stretch your imagination @ 2", I cut it 3 times to make it thicker and cut the layer 1 time in white and embossed with the cuttlebug. Dream and you inspire me were chip board from my stash as were the ribbons flowers and buttons. I bound it with the bind it all after I had covered the CD's with paper, but before embellishing. THE PICTURES ARE POSTED IN THE WRONG ORDER, THE BOTTOM ONE IS THE COVER AND THEN WORK YOUR WAY UP. Thanks for looking

    Do you remember what size circles you cut to cover the cd's ?? I love this little card/book. I want to make little albums out of them. You did a great job and I really like your blog.
