Fish you were here...


I was lucky enough to win a Kraftin' Kimmie challenge just in time to use my resulting gift certificate on the brand new mermaid set called Fin-tastic Friends and when it arrived in the mail a couple days ago I just had to get this gal on a card ASAP. I LOVE how relaxed and chill she looks and imagined that if mermaids had a tropical resort to hang out at she would be there running the place, LOL! 
This resort would be 5-star ritzy I tell ya, so of course she needed a luxe gold tail to feel right at home. And I colored her hair to match the rosy sunset sky behind her... perhaps it is camouflage to blend in with her surroundings. ;)

Anywho, the current KK challenge is to 'try something new', which includes using a new stamp, and since they don't get much newer than this little lady I'm entering my card into the running.  :)
