The Sunday CD challenge - Sketch

I am a bit late with my card this week,  but better late than never,  this is my card for the Sunday CD Challenge which this is a sketch,   which I hope my interpenetration is OK.  
I have used the Glitter and Glitz Art Deco Christmas CD,  I used a white scalloped card with a black piece of card for the back,  and a piece of pattern backing paper and the matching image,   I cut the image into a circle and placed it on round piece of silver card,   put a piece of real lace across the bottom and then a strip from the same design with the wording on the top of the lace.   Finished off the card with silver peel off s and six gems,  three at the top and three at the bottom.  This is my first Christmas card this year and its only June.

I hope the floods and storms that have been experienced in parts of the UK have not affected you.  The weather this month has been horrible,  it just wont stop raining,  its must have been the wettest June on record,  at least here in Somerset we did have the storms that parts of the UK had yesterday.  But its muggy and heavy,  it feels like Crete in the sunshine when it shines, that is when its not raining,  yet we have wind today and it still feels muggy and heavy.   We had an extra bonus to our weather here we had sand from the sahara,  yes we have had sand and rain, every thing in the garden and our car along with everyone's else's are dusty even the rain has not washed the sand off.   What else can the weather throw at us?
I hope you have a lovely weekend and take care.
