CD Sunday - Say It With Scallops

We are half way through the week and I am only just posting my contribution to this weeks CD Sunday challenge. This week it's scallops. and I have decided to go with shells, these have a beautiful natural scallop shape to them. The CD I have used is Summerbreeze by Debbi Moore. I opened the CD and the took snapshots of the pages that had the images and backgrounds that I wanted to use, and then took them into MCS to crop and re size. I picked the shell shaped image and cropped it from the sheet, and re sized it so that it would fit nicely onto a 6 x 6 card, I then copied and pasted so that I had 5 layers. From another sheet I cropped and re sized a sentiment. Next I re sized the backing paper down to A5 size so that I would not loose to much if the design on it. I matted the backing paper onto some gold pearl card, and also the sentiment. After layering the image up I then added a swirl of pearls.

Thanks for looking, your kind comments are appreciated.

That is a lovely image and a clever interpretation of 'scallops'. I expect most people will include scalloped edges to their cards or layers. Not tried any Debbie Moore CDs myself.

That is a truly beautiful card.
What a brilliant idea to use the shell.
I really nust learn to think outside the box.
