Magical birthday wishes...

Hello friends!

Today's mermaid is the dreamy Mermaid of Star digi from A Day For Daisies (though I couldn't find her on the site to link up anymore). I printed her out rather big so that she would float across the entire front of the card. Though I had to be sure to leave enough room for some pretty paper to show so that I could enter this card into the current 'Floral Paper' challenge. At first I thought it would be hard to find a floral print that would work with the mermaid theme but when I came across this old Heidi Grace print the sketchy flowers actually kinda looked like sea anemones... perfect! So I pulled my Copic colors to match and got this pretty card done just like that. :)

Hi Amy, Wow I can not believe how long it has been since I've been able to play in blogland. lol... Your card is as always so pretty and I truly love how you put it all together with the image and the sentiment. So pretty. Hope you and your family are all doing well. The M&Ms graduated on Saturday, and I am in the middle of changing my job after 26 years, so to say the least I've been a tab busy. I was however able to slip in a new card over on my poor neglected blog.
Hugs LisaG
