Cutie Patootie Mermaid!

Just a quickie to post my card for this week's Michelle Perkett Studios challenge for mermaids!

 
 


I used this Cutie Patootie Birthday Mermaid - she really is, isn't she?!  I bought my digi from Bunny Zoe's Crafts here.  I matched her up with the gorgeous new Cosmo Cricket Salt Air paper pad that I recently got from Quixotic Paperie (here).

I am also entering my card into the Wags 'n Whiskers challenge for circles, Copics Creations to use Copics from the yellow family and I also used this week's sketch over at Sketch Saturday...


And before I go, have you seen Elaine's gorgeous card here using one the new Carmen Medlin for SCACD Stamps preview on her blog?  Those of you who know Elaine's work will know she is one of the true masters of colouring!  Please go and take a look (there's also candy to be won!) - you won't be disappointed!


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock,  Cosmo Cricket Salt Air paper pad (from Quixotic Paperie (here).
Stamps: Michelle Perkett Studios Cutie Patootie Birthday Mermaid (from Bunny Zoe's Crafts here), CC Designs sentiments
Mediums: Copics, Glossy Accents (on heart)
Accents: web ribbon, dew drops
Tools:
Fiskars wave border punch, heart punch, Nestabilitie label die inside card
