You make my world bright...

Good morning!

Well the weekend was fantastic but it just flew by. We did end up going to Spokane and it became a whole girls trip as both of my sisters and mom were with me. Needless to say we had ourselves a very good time and didn't get back until late last night. I was smart though, and got a CAS card done on Saturday so that I could have a quick post today before I rush off to work. 

Today's mermaid comes from Some Odd Girl and she is called Mermaid Piper. This lovely little lass looked to me like she makes the waters of the Bahamas her home so I gave her a beautiful, warm skin tone. Initially I pulled all my Copic colors from some pattern paper that turned out to be too busy with this peaceful looking scene and in the end I didn't even use it. Instead some shimmery gold paper just looked right, a minimal amount of embellishing and this card was done.

Ok then, time for me to get moving. Take care and I'll talk at'cha later. :)
