Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Don't be Blue

Are you ready for another fun Challenge as Sassy Cheryl's?  Ann is the hostess this week and chose the theme, Don't be Blue, and she wants you to make a card with the theme to be blue. I chose the new, Beauty in the Making, for my card:

I absolutely fell in love with this image as soon as I saw it, and was in desperate need of some serious therapy, so decided to do some image merging using all of the files in this group in one card.....the only one I left out was the shoes...LOL 

First I added the music layer and added the Sassy Ballerina over the top.  I then simplified it so I could erase the overlapping lines.  I then added the top sentiment and lower Dance sentiment all merged as layers and then printed as one image.  The program I use is Photo Shop elements 7. 

I cheated just a teensy weensy bit and added a little red for the shirt and shoes.  I thought it was busy enough that I only added a few embellishments, and wallah, I have me a beautimus card, got a lot of therapy, and got to practice my merging skills. Win Win Win!!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT cards, I know they will be beautiful.  Be sure to grab an image or two and play along in the challenge, you may win in the random drawing for two images held every week from the entrants, just use a Sassy image.

Just a reminder that the new, Sassy Cheryl's Store, is ready to go, the images have been moved over from the old store and you can  purchase the images from the Bargain bins only until Thursday night, then they will be no longer available.... you snooze. you lose.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.

I'm so impressed with your merging skills- think I need some classes! Glad you added the red shoes- red shoes are ALWAYS called for :-). Such a happy little scene- very theraputic indeed!

Good Lord Cathy. All that merging. You sound like one of those Geek Squad guys at Best Buy. I had PhotoShop Elements 4 and NEVER could figure out all the layers and smashing and merging. I have to fussy cut and paste, LOL.

The result was phenomenal though. She looks so happy - just lost in the music.

Oh Cathy...you are such a "merging show off"!!! haha! Someday I'll actually give merging a try...probably right about the same time I actually take my sewing machine out of the box! bwahaha!! Your card is absolutely delicious...I love that you included so many of SC's elements!! This little Maddie is so stinkin' adorable...I'm with you...I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her!! Love her fashion sense...not to mention the fact that she can really pull off wearing a hat!! I'm so jealous! hehe! Hugs. Pat
