You are the pearl...

Hey there!

I've had this scene stamped and the water colored in since before the Mermaids Galore collection was released at Sweet November Stamps a couple weeks back. Rather than let it sit on my desk any longer yesterday I decided to finish coloring it and turn it into a card. The entire scene is built around this pretty mermaid and her otter pal from the Mermees #2 set, which is currently sold out. For anyone who missed out on this stamp set, I promise it will be restocked soon. I also used both sides of the Horizon Lines: Under the Sea set in their full glory as they fill the space of a long slimline card quite nicely. And yet again that cute little crab from the Mermees #1 set also got to come out and play. He seems to sneak on to many of my mermaid cards, LOL! I'm so glad I made the time to finally finish this card because I really love how it turned out.
