I adore Mermaids, I think any card with a mermaid on turns out to be a favourite.

I made this card yesterday,ready to blog for the weekend. It was boiling hot (again) and I have made so many Christmas cards lately - I needed a change, so fans blowing some cool(ish) air I set to work.
I used the absolutly stunning Mermaid digi

That you can find in the Etsy store here.
She is also available on the Bonbon Belles Collection
Bonbon Belles Double CD Collection
All the emblies (apart from the seaweed - which was a leaf punch) came from there , also the sweet Sentiment.
The wave paper , which fitted perfectly is from

I coloured with Graph'It Markers
Skin 4115, 4155, 4170, 3210
Hair 3290, 3280, 3250, 3245, 3210, 4110
Blue 7155, 7150, 7145, 7140
and also used Glamour Dust to make her sparkle and Glossy accents for bubbles
I love the 3'd effect although quite difficult to take a photo off.
