Delicate delightful mermaid

Hi everyone!  Meant to post this earlier but we spent the day down on the beach, walking and talking then sitting and reading!  Spent far too long doing not a lot so had to rush home and get ready to go out for a meal - no time for crafting and blogging!  But I managed to finish a card using a delightful digistamp mermaid by Michelle Perkett Studios called Just Breathe (got mine from Bunny Zoe's here) for their challenge this week of anything goes...

 
 


I matched her up with that gorgeous BasicGrey Indian Summer paper pad (also from Bunny Zoe's here) and a floaty dusky pink wired edge organza ribbon (also from Bunny Zoe's here).

Well, had better wrap up and go to bed now!  See you tomorrow for my Ladybug Crafts Ink and A Spoonful of Sugar DT posts - ta ra!



Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, BasicGrey Indian Summer
Stamps: Michelle Perkett Just Breathe Mermaid, Pink Petticoat digi sentiment
Mediums: Copics
Accents: dusky pink wired edge organza ribbon
Tools: Nestabilities label die, EK Success border punch

Very elegant Mary! I would never have thought to use those colors with a mermaid but it really works well. Hope you had a great weekend! Wish I had a beach to walk too, guess I will have to go stick my feet in the creekbed!

I don't know how I missed this post but I do find that the dashboard is not always lit up correctly. Really lovely card.
