A lovely hello...

Hey there!

I'm back today with the second new digi merbean from The Greeting Farm. Her name is Coralina and she has got such a fun attitude about her, must be that cheeky little wink she is throwing our way. I went with a different color combo compared to my earlier merbean card this week, Coralina being very cool with the purples and dark blue plus I thought it would be fun to try a silver looking fin. I paired her up with this funky print by Heidi Grace because I liked how the circles kinda looked like the tops of jellyfish. As I was putting the card together I realized that Coralina needed someone to be waving hello to and I immediately thought of this cute puffer fish from the Sister Stamps Octopus set. One problem though... he was facing the wrong direction. What to do? Well, I stamped him up, flipped the cardstock over onto my light box and then proceeded to trace the image right there on the back of the cardstock. It was super easy and just like that my puffer fish pal was looking right at Coralina. Success!  ;)

Ta Ta for now!
