Seaside Card

A card challenge this month was to use a photo in your card.  I decided to use a recent picture taken of our week-end to Mablethorpe in April 2012.  I took the photo into Craft Artist Professional.  I then added a paper from Joanna Sheen's Faye Whittaker CD of the gorgeous boats and sea.  I then added a frame around the photo from a Daisy Trail free kit, along with a lighthouse and shells.  I then printed off and cut out a decoupage sheet from the Joanna Sheen Faye Whittaker CD.  I didn't use all the layers as I didn't need the main image with the background so that can be used for another card.  I did some simple matting and layering.  The card has been finished off with some ribbon, personalised insert from the CD and some gorgeous tiny shells.
