The Little Mermaid


So, I first saw this gorgeous digi-mermaid over on Minas blog, an had to have it!! Its from Crafts and Me, and was just lovely to use.   I used wave embossed pearl paper, opalescent paper and lots of shimmer which is quite difficult for the camera to pick up.


And, yep - I'm still loving playing with my Marianne flower dies :)  I also used spellbinder Fleur-de-Lys, Nesties and Magnolia doo-hickey dies on this too.

I made this card for a very special friend who loves all things mermaid and fishies, but not crabs!! lol.

.... and I am entering this card in the below competitions:
