Walking on Sunshine Card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I hope you're all enjoying the start of your weekend.

I thought I would try something new for me which is printing the image straight onto my card front. I have seen others do it before and it looks great but I'm not quite so thrilled with mine. The photo shows the card looking very wonky but it isn't. I couldn't leave the background white so I inked yellow around the card. The image is from Saturated Canary.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Deep Ocean - Summer fun
Fussy & Fancy Friday - Lazy summer days
Incy Wincy Designs - Frame it
Inspiration Destination -  Anything goes 
Not Just Cards -  Anything goes
One Sweet Challenge - Back to school (try something new): image directly on card front.
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes with optional twist: torn edges 
(Pin)spirational Challenges - Photo inspiration - inspired by beach, sand, summer
Stempelsonne (Stamp Sun) -   Anything goes

Thank you so much for dropping by and extra special thanks to my lovely followers and visitors that leave some beautiful comments for me, they warm my heart.

  14. It looks wonderful to me, Lucy. It might just be that you aren't used to looking at CAS cards made by you. Your colouring is always spot on and really shines with this design. I like the yellow edging and the clean border around the image. Thanks for joining our Back to School challenge at One Sweet Challenge this month. I always enjoy visiting your blog.
