So That's Why They Call it the Blues

This card is a little bit of serendipity.  I had made another card with this image and used the cut out image as a mask, but afterwards it looked so pretty I just had to use it somehow.  I like the ombre effect too.  So yes, it's paper pieced.

A beautiful card Carol - and so typical at the moment!! Love your background, and the ombre effect on the image
