CD Sunday - Majesty

This weeks challenge over at CD Sunday is Majesty. I've chosen to go with the Majesty of a stunning view, and Thomas Kinkade was the obvious CD to reach for for this. I make the cards for all of the family members for my in-laws, and as it's my hubby's birthday on Tuesday I've made this for them to give to him. As a very keen fisherman I always try to make something that reflects his hobby, hence the fish and twine. Last month he went to a fishing show (a bit like a craft show, but with fishing things) and came back very enthusiastic about going to Canada and fishing lake Ontario for carp, this is all I hear at the moment. Now I have been to Toronto, which is on the edge of lake Ontario, and it's very flat around there, but I'd like to think that somewhere it would look a little bit like this scene. Back to the card though, I printed the topper onto some canvas photo paper and then mounted it onto some gold textured card. I mounted the backing paper onto the same textured card, and wrapped some twine around the bottom. In the cupboard I had some rub ons, so I put two of the fish onto some light weight card and the cut the out and placed them on the bottom. Finally I added a sentiment, which was made on the PC.

Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

A beautiful card Sue, I love the scene and I know hubby will love it. I haven't used Canvas Photo Paper, something else to try.

Hi Sue, Beautiful card & scene. The fish are a great addition. It looks like western Canada to me in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Great card for your husband! Happy Sunday, Shirleyx
