The Little Mermaid

It was Mothering Sunday yesterday so we had my 91 year old mum-in-law and my brother-in-law over for lunch. Once they had gone it was time to play and this is what I came up with. (Sorry it looks a bit out of focus)

I've used this sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 this week

but I have rotated it 180 degrees.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 has a twist of using mermaids or fairies on your cards this week so I have used the Mermaid 2 stamp from Lili of the Valley and coloured it with my copics, the papers are also from Lili of the Valley.
Allsorts challenge blog have challenged us to Use those dies this week, so I have used Spelbinders Lacey Circles and Standard Circles and then the shell is a Sizzix die which has been resident in the craft room for about 12 years.
I have finished off with a pearl and with some dew drops as they seemed to match in with the water theme.
The lilac card is American Crafts and the base card is Craftwork Cards oh and the ribbon is American Crafts too.

Thank you for visiting and for any comments you are kind enough to take the time to leave.
