CD Sunday - Dreams

The challenge over on the CD Sunday blog this week is Dreams. I instantly found myself reaching for Joanna Sheens Enchanted Dreams CD, there are so many beautiful dreamy images to choose from. The only problem being was which one to choose. In the end I went with this image of a sleeping mermaid from the "By The Sea" section. What I love about these images are, there is so much going on in the picture, you find something new every time you look at them. For this card I have used a large square card base, made from 2 A4 sheets of white card stock. I mounted the topper and the backing paper onto some green mirri card, added some peridot coloured gems to the sides. The ribbon, which is a beautiful pale green colour, has in the photo, come out looking more yellow. When in fact in real life it looks a far better match. The sentiment was printed on a laser printer and then put through the foiling machine with a green coloured foil to match. Again like last week I made this card with someones birthday in mind and as I type this it is already in the post.

Thanks for looking, your kind comments are appreciated.

This popped up again this week on our CD Sunday Challenge - must be a glitch but I was very sad to see that there is no comment from me. I remember seeing it and loving it but I must have had a brainstorm. Sorry Sue.
