Can I Keep Him!?

Isn't this the cutest little mermaid and seal EVAH!?  I love mermaids and when I saw Amber Ink's BABY MERMAID collections I had to have them!  This little cutie is asking her Mermommy if she can keep that little lost seal - so stinkin' adorable :)  I'm entering this card in a few challenges:

Cute Card Thursday Challenge #169 - use birthstone colors:  I've used peridot and aquamarine

Hooked on Craft Challenges Challenge #1 - Anything Goes

Make It Monday Challenge #42 - Anything Goes

Everybody Art Challenge #147 - Anything Goes

Southern Girls Challenge #21 - Anything Goes

Here are the deets for the card -- digital stamp from Amber Ink, colored with copics and mermaid tail embellished with sequins and Glossy Accents.  The ocean print paper is from Creative Imaginations (I couldn't find the name but here is the sku #2692728238).  I cut it with an oval nestie but wanted some of the images left attached (turtle, fish, and bubbles!).  I popped the oval with foam (cut using a nestie too).  The cardstock is Bazzill - the background cardstock was embossed with Fiskars Texture Plates (waves).  The glitter frame cut with Grand Nesties squares from Recollections Signature glitter paper in powder.  The "seaweed" is Celebrate It Mariposa polyester ribbon and the sentiment was copied onto Shrinky Dinks film (with a Sharpie) and heated using my heat gun.

Hope your week is going well (and yes, I'm counting down to Friday ;) !  <3 Lisa
