Altered Art CD Card: A thing of Beauty...

This Altered Art card uses an old CD (you know, the free ones you get when someone is trying to sell you something).

I made it for the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge:
SSS45 - February 27, 2010 which gives you a specific pattern to follow. I had this CD laying around and was thinking today -- how can I incorporate it into a card. Then, when I went to the Sweet Stop Blog, I knew it was meant to be because the pattern included a circle with layers that would cover the center hole. Perfect! :)

Basic Supplies (PDF link at bottom):
Close to My Heart Stamp set “Thing of Beauty” (C1301)
Close to My Heart Stamp set “Cherished Flourishes" (D1413)
