Experiment with an image

I love the Joanna Sheen Enchanted Dreams cd, and in particular this image.   I imported the image into Publisher then copied and cropped it and then enlarged it to the size I wanted as an experiment to use as as a ribbon of backing paper.

I was thrilled when I was planning the design in Publisher to see that the "wings" appear to match perfectly.  I will confess that I had no idea when I started to play that this would happen, and am really quite pleased with the effect.

I edged the backing strip with a peel-off, and matted the image on mirri card, which is raised up slightlly on 3d tape.  Finished the card with a simple peel-off Happy Birthday and some pink sparkly stars which pick up the colours in the image.  Card was a pale green Papermania Shimmer Textured cardstock from the Aqua Marine pack.
