The Sunday CD Challenge A is for..........

What another beautiful day,   this week has been glorious and hot makes a wonderful change after all the rain we have had over the last few months.   I just wish it would last until Christmas.  I don't think it will as they say its going to get cooler next week,  that is British weather for you.
Today I bring you my challenge card for the Sunday CD Challenge  this week its A is for............,   Well my A is American Indians,   I used Joanne Sheens American Frontier CD,    I made an easel card from deep yellow card,   Placed a piece of gold miri board on the easel part of the card and then used the backing paper that went with the image but I cut into two pieces and used gold peel off's around the edges.   I then used the main image matted it on gold miri board,  punching out the corners so the image slotted in the corner.  I used some of the backing paper on the base of the card and a strip of yellow card raised one side and a piece of gold miri board put on top with gold Happy Birthday.    
The dream catcher is one of my tatted dream catchers which is my own pattern and can be found on my pattern blog,  link is on my sidebar.   I placed a gold Indian head on the yellow card and cut around it and put it on top of the brad holding the dream catcher on.

I thought you might like to see the earrings I made on Marilee's course,  I have now finished then off by blocking them  and added the earring hooks.
I hope where ever you are the sun is shinning on you and you are enjoying the beautiful weather we are having here in the UK,   Tomorrow the Olympics start I hope the weather holds out over the next few weeks,  so everyone from overseas can enjoy the UK at its best.
Until we meet again take care
