Little Mermaid!

Here's a little card I made to cheer up a friend!
The image is from JW Illustrations but I'm not sure she's still available
I've had it printed out for ages but not coloured it up until now!
She was just perfect for what I wanted!
I apologise for the quality of the photos but they were taken at night & I had to
get this card sent off asap!

I coloured her up with promarkers, the layout was a sketch from 
goodness knows where! I wish I could remember!
I edged the DCWV papers with distress ink & added some buttton & 
punched butterfly embellishments!

The sentiment ticket is from The Crafty Pad
it's so versatile & can be used for so many occasions.
I added some glitz in the form of  Glamour Dust,
A Satin ribbon bow & a couple of stick pins

Here's a closer look at the glitz!

I decorated the inside of the card to match the outside!
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you like my card!
I'd like to enter it in a few challenges as listed below!
