At last...

...I had the elements for this card all ready on Wednesday but have only found the time to make it today. The card is for CD Sunday Blog Challenge where the theme this week is nautical.



The image is from a cd by CardzCardzCardz called Everyday 2 Pyramidz & Invertz. I've had this cd for years and never used it. The images tend to look fuzzy if you enlarge them. This one was to make a pyramage card but it was round and I'm unbelievably bad at cutting circles! So I opened the base image in MCS and played around until I had 4 layers of square pyramage. The base layer had a border around it that was a very pale blue. I didn't like the colour so had a rummage in my stash and found some red paper that was the same colour as the boat so made a new frame. I made the frame slightly larger than the base layer and after sticking it down I went around the edge with an embossing tool and it now looks as if the frame is embossed. Whilst I was rummaging for the red paper I came across the anchors so finished the card with one in each corner. Off to post this on the CD Sunday Blog before it's too late for this week! LOL!
