Shellabrate your day...

 Hey there! 

Guess who was going through her mermaid stamps yesterday and realized that this fun set from Whimsy Stamps had yet to be inked up? Well of course I had to remedy that by putting together an under the sea scene using as many stamps from the Mermaid Birthday set as I could. To help with that I chose to create a tall slimline card using the Mini Scallop slimline die from CC Designs, which appears to be retired. They are so cute and I love how the fish appears to be quite confused by the goldfish balloons the mermaid is holding. The extra space of the slimline design really gives the scene room to breath and those mermaids room to float freely. I'm so happy that I'm able to cross another neglected stamp set off my 'need to color' list.  ;)

Have a good one!
