Out of this World - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

A really quick blog post from me today.  It's been a mad week with preparations for the boys' school fete tomorrow and helping out a friend in need which has left me with very little free time.

The Challenge set this week is by Joanne who asks:

For as long as people have been communicating

it seems we've told stories of the fantastic and unexplained. Let's
see some imaginary or mythical beings this week - fairies, mermaids,
aliens, unicorns, hobbits, dragons... where will your imagination take

For my super quick creation this week I used files from the Silhouette Store.  These have been designed by Sarah Hurley and go together so well.

The waves are a stencil file which I used as a backgound by taking alternate pieces out, I loved the effect it gave.  The mermaid silhouette I cut out of glitter as I wanted some bling, besides I think I've made so many male cards recently I needed to go girly!  Finally, the sentiment is a cut file but I changed it to a write file.  The sentiment is just fabulous - don't you agree?

Enjoy the summer sunshine!
