Mermaid Beauty


I love a good challenge... so when I received the envelope from Susanne (Imke's Mystery Image Group) I was so excited that I actually played with it almost immediately and had my card made before the day was over.

The image is GREAT!!! I actually love it. The challenge is.... it is VERY large. Susanne also included a very large tag for us to use (she referred to it as a one-sided card).

I decided to fold the tag... and I (*gasp) cut the image, too.

Here's my card:










The entire image didn't fit on the front, so the mermaid's fins are inside:





I'm not overly happy with the outcome, but I loved the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
