Trying my hand at Vintage

I created this card for a challenge posted on the Papercrafts message board. We try to have weekly challenges - each week someone else takes a turn as the hostess : ) The challenge was to create a background on a card using a common household item.

I used an old CD. I think this turned out neat - sort of like the sentiment from Ecclesiastes I used that says: "To everything there is a season...." The new and the old are represented on this card.

Pictured here is the card with a bow in the upper right hand corner but at the suggestion of my Vintage mentor : ) Sue "weedsgalore" I removed the bow. She suggested the card didn't "need" it and underneath that bow is a beautiful botanical paper so I have removed the bow and I agree it looks better.

My friends suggested I submit this card for a publication. I have NO idea! how to do that but I may look into it. What do you think??
