Do Not Disturb

Yes, it isn't a card (shock horror!) but it is a sign for my bathroom door - and I took the photos against the bathroom wall over the bath which perhaps accounts for the odd lighting. LOL. It came about as I wanted to join in the extra challenge over at Crafty Pad to use an old CD and then in a moment of inspiration I knew what I wanted to create - a 'do not disturb' sign for my newly refurbished bathroom. Of course, there is a story to accompany why I would need a sign - but suffice to say, the new bathroom suite is so popular that I am finding it difficult to try out the new bath without someone else chasing me out.

The reverse

The idea of using a CD just seemed so perfect as a base. Onto this base I added holographic card & then  matted up black & white papers (to match the bathroom of course!) The gorgeous image is from Phindy's Place and is called 'Sudsy Suzy' and she & her elegant cat were coloured with Promarkers. Not too easy to colour white!  The 'mwah' is from TLC but the other 'signs' & instructions I created on the PC adding them both onto the front and the reverse. Satin ribbon was used to suspend the 'Goddess Within' and also to go over the door handle embellishing with a few gems for good measure.

As if to prove why I need a sign in the first place, my husband came home early from work and chased me out of the bathroom (fortunately having taken a couple of snaps) so he could try out the bath again!!! I'll never get in it at this rate. LOL.
