Birthday Card Using CTMH No Worries Paper and Cricut Artbooking Cartridge

Hello friends.  I hope you are all doing well and finding time to craft.  It is super hot in Southern CA; so I am staying indoors as much as possible.  I hope it is cooler where you are.  It was 110 degrees for a few days in a row now.  I feel really bad for my feral cats.  It is so hot outside.

It is my turn for another Inspiration Post; and we are all using the same image this week.  Our image is Ching-Chou Kuik "The Tender Angie"; which is another gorgeous mermaid I don't think I have ever used.  We would love to see your gorgeous creations in the July Monthly Challenge; with the topic as Monochrome.  I love the challenge of creating all one color family.  This one wasn't created for that challenge; so I was able to use a few other colors with it. LOL!

DiesFrames with Image - Spellbinders Matting Basics A & B
Sea life dies - Gina Marie Designs
