CD Sunday - Hugs and Wishes

This weeks challenge over on the CD Sunday blog is Hugs and Wishes, and I've managed to combine this with a card that I was asked to make with a Mermaid on. I've used Josephine Wall, Enchanted Dreams CD from Joanna Sheen. There are some lovely Mermaids on this CD, and there is always so much more going on in the picture than first meets the eyes. It's an 8x8 white card base, and for the matting I've used silver mirri card. I chose to use the largest topper on the sheet after printing it off, which was onto some canvas photo paper. I've added some metallic ribbon down the side of the card in matching colours, and some small shells, which are available to buy on Joanna Sheen's website, there are loads in the bag, and they are not too bulky to put onto the front of a card. Finally the sentiment was computer generated.

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

A lovely card Sue. I see what you mean about the image - the longer you look the more things seem to appear.
Thank you for joining in this week.

Beautiful Sue, the talent of this artist, as you say the more you look the more you see and doing this on a large card base shows it off so well.
