Happy Summer...

Hello friends!

So I got these darling CC Designs Mermaid Party stamps last summer and it took me this long to finally get a couple of them inked up and on a card. I went with a mini slimline card using this dainty scalloped design from Trinity Stamps because I knew I wanted to stack these two mermaids with one floating above the other. I did make a slight alteration to that upper mermaid by wiping the ink away from the little turtle she is originally bending over to see. Now she is looking down at the mermaid below instead and I love the interaction between these two. Even further down the card I added a few rocks and kelp from the Underwater Scene set and in the distant water behind the mermaids I also added a school of fish from the Sweet November Mermaid Hair set. What can I say... I loves me some mermaids and these two 'best fins' make me all kinds of happy. :)

Ok, time for me to scoot my boot... have a good one!
