Best Fishes - Pearl


Daring Cardmakers - Wet, Wet, Wet

Sketch Saturday (52) - Sketch

A Spoonful Of Sugar (53) - Lace

Creative Card Crew (12) - Pretty Flowers

ABC - P is for Pearls

Cute Card Thursday (62) - Bit O' Bling

Paperplay (19) - Buttons Galore

Well, I do like to see how many challenges I can get out of one card, a challenge in itself.

Anyway, this little mermaid is called Pearl and she is from the new Lili Of The Valley cutouts called 'Mermaids'. There are three others to keep her company and they come together with backing papers and greetings all in gorgeous pastel colours. After adding glitter glue and Sakura Stardust pen to the image I layered it up and added some shell buttons. The flowers and leaves are punched out using the backing papers. I added pearls to the centres of the flowers and to the lace and popped a starfish button at the bottom. Hope you like it.

Such a pretty card Christine.
It’s all perfect, the pale Blue papers, the flowers, the pearls and the stamp but best of all I love the ‘Best Fishes’ sentiment, it made my smile so much when I read it!
