Mermaid Beauty

This card was made with a beautiful image from Michelle Perkett Studio. This was so much fun to make! I used lots of my favorite things on it...a wonderful mermaid image, core'dinations paper, cuttlebugged and sanded, glitter paper for her paper-pieced tail and scalloped nestability, watercolor pencils, paper flower with glittery brad, Stickles and dew drops. Wow...fun, fun, fun!

It is for multiple challenges:

1. Cowgirl's Sunday Challenge found here: http://cowgirlssundaystampenchallenge.blogspot.com/. They're having an "Anything Goes" challenge this coming Sunday, July 25th, which is being sponsored by Michelle Perkett Studio, found here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/michelleperkett. Please be sure to stop by Sunday and join in the challenge. Regretfully, because of lots of personal things in my life, such as my husband retiring July 30th, getting our house ready for rental, and moving to CA and finding a new home there, I had to resign from the DT team, so this is the last card I made for them.
