House of Mouse Challenge #175-"It's all about Summer-Relax"!!

Good morning...the beginning of a new week AND a new challenge at House of Mouse!!

Continuing on with the summer theme...this time it's about relaxing!!

This is my second card as a Guest Designer at House of Mouse Challenge blog!

I am so enjoying these sweet images again and found it so hard to pick I went with two...
please click on the first image for a closer view and slideshow...
I decided to make a "peek-a-boo" card...
this first image is "Sleeping in the Crocus" HMOR1016... 
 the top corner with butterfly charm...I added pearls to it's center, some shabby seam binding and added the "RELAX" & "ENJOY" (computer generated) banners....
 close up of this super sweet image...
 the card opened to show the second image...
I added decorative corner cut outs and flower/vine using  Lea'abilities 45.8558...
 the second image is Happy Hoppers "Umbrella Nap" HHCV04...
sentiment is computer generated...
 closer view...
if you start opening the card the second image slides into place over the first image...
