Let's be mermaids...

Hello, hello!

 I'm posting on the Greeting Farm blog today and I just had to play around with a little Mer-May magic before the month ends. One of the great things about the new Happy to Sea You set that was just released is not only do the sea critters work together to build scenes but they also mix and match with older stamps quite beautifully. For my card I really wanted to create an under the sea scene with the fabulous mermaid Trishell. To help fill out the rest of the scene I added the crab and starfish from Happy to Sea You as well as some smaller starfish from the Little Mermaids set. I love how these little additions bring so much interest and life to the overall card design. I gotta say that after completing this card the wheels are definitely turning on all the different sets I can mix and match with these fintastic sea critters. :)
