Leave a little sparkle...


So last month I saw a card on Pinterest using a pretty little mermaid stamp by Elisabeth Bell and I just had to get my hands on it. So I immediately tried to find out where to buy it only to discover that they were released a couple years ago by Sweet Pea Designs which has since gone out of business. Disheartened but not discouraged I continued my internet search hoping to get lucky. After a couple strike outs I stumbled upon a little stamp shop that is sadly closing its doors as well but in the meantime has big discounts on all their remaining inventory. It's called The Stamp Room and while the exact mermaid that started my hunt was already out of stock I did find a few others to get just as excited about. I also stumbled upon this baby fairy called Flit that just stole my heart. I paired her up with some random paper scraps that were on my desk and kinda make it look like she is running into a field of flowers. The sentiment is Papertrey Ink and I think it is pretty darn perfect with little Flit. This card was a lot of fun to make.
In the meantime... if anyone knows where I can find Tide, Oceanessa and/or Little Splash please, hook a girl up!  LOL! :)

Later gators!

Such a darling card... the sparkle that you scattered in her path is perfect with the sentiment. The paper is as sweet as she is, and love how you brought all the colors together. And those darling little pudgy legs and feet!! :)
