Magical Mermaid

This is my latest card for the Card Makin Mamas DT where our current challenge is 'spring'. We have been sponsered by 'Hobby Book' who have the lovely mermaid image I have used on my card.

This card starts with a 6x6 scalloped edge card blank that I have coloured using a range of blue & green shades of H20's. This has given the card a shimmer that doesn't really show up on the photo unfortunately. I used my cricut 'Elegant Edges' cartridge to cut a mat with a 'bubble' border from DCWV 12x12 patterned paper. I mounted this onto my card using double sided tape. I coloured the mermaid topper using a mix of both promarkers & spectrum noirs and then cut around the edge leaving a small white border. I then attached this to the card with 3d foam pads. The finishing touch was to add the real mini shells to the base of the card using some pva glue.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Cutie Pie 'magical'
Creatilicious 'colour challenge- brights'
