Mermaid Card...

Hi Everyone, 
WOW its a beautiful day here but theres a really strong wind picking up!!! Its a shame as you get the sunshine but then get blown away by it!!! 

Today's card has taken me nearly a week to make. Ive been really busy with Tom back at school so I decided that I would get it finished this afternoon!!! 

This is a beautiful freebie over on A Day For Daisies. I always feel with their images that because they are so delicate I want to watercolor them. Thats just what  I did here and then added some perfect pearls for accents.

This is gorgeous Hazel, will have to snap up this mermaid too. She looks great in water colour, how appropriate when she's out of the sea! Great card design and decoration. Love it, Jx

Hazel, this card is gorgeous, what a wistful enchanting image, beautifully coloured. I thought your sequins must have been the 'spots', but your spots and strikes inside are perfect for our 'Spots and Stripes' challenge this week at Sweet Stampin'. Thanks for joining in the fun with us. We hope you'll come and play along again soon. Hugs, Wends x Sweet Stampin' DT
