And now for something completely different.....

Last week I bought a CD I'd not seen before, Joanna Sheen's Viva La Divas. The images on it are rather like the humorous cards seen in the shops at the moment, 1950s style pictures, mostly of women, with very 21st century slogans.

The images and mottoes really speak for themselves, so there isn't a lot in the way of creativity you can produce with it,  but it's perfect for making humorous cards, perhaps for the kind of person who wouldn't normally appreciate a hand made card.

I've been looking for an excuse to use it, and this Sunday's challenge at CD Sundays, Purple Paradise,  made me think of this image straight away.

I experiment with many different styles, but I've never used a CD quite like this before - hence the subject of today's post.
