CD Sunday - Enchantment

Over on CD Sunday this week we want you to think enchanting thoughts and show us what the word enchantment means to you.  For my card I have used an image from Joanna Sheen's - Country Garden, this image makes me think of an enchanted forest and the children are fascinated by the spider.
I coloured the background of the card with three distress inks and it's not as dark as it looks in the picture, I used spun sugar, scattered straw and one of the new ones iced spruce, before putting the ink on I stamped the swirls and embossed with silver pearl embossing powder.  The flowers were in a Kanban kit I bought from C&C, they were cream but I used the spun sugar ink directly onto the card before rolling them up. I have used a punch for the leaves and I was going to put a sentiment on but it didn't look right so used a few pearls instead.

I do hope you can come on over and join us, you know we love to see your entries as it gives us a chance to have a sneaky peak at all the other things you do.
