Keeping me afloat...


I grabbed this freebie Mermaid digi off the ADFD blog last summer and I'm finally getting her on a card for this year's month of mermaids theme. She seems so peaceful and reflective that I wanted to keep the colors of the card soft and muted  to help with that mood. The sentiment comes from a little Papertrey Ink set and again I think it really works with this sweet mermaid's vibe. I added some Eucalyptus Stickles to her tail so that it would be extra glittery and I could enter this card into the current "add glitter" challenge. Then I just added a few die cut seashells and a sprinkling of sequins to pull it all together. 

Ok, time for me to scoot my boot. Take care everyone!  :)
