Splish Splash

Ok so here is my second card of the evening:

I have used the super little mermaid image from Bugaboo Stamps for this card. I have coloured her with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers and then done a little bit of paper piecing with glittery paper on her tail. I have used craft glaze over the tail but it is so shiny anyway you can't really see it. I used my Spellbinders to cut the ovals for her to sit on or should I say swim in. The patterned papers are from my big Canadian paper pad and the plain blue card is from my stash. I used an embossing folder and a blue chalk ink pad to give it a bit more life. I cut all the little triangles for the bunting and added FOR YOU with peeloffs and a little pearl on each. I found some shiny string type stuff in my ribbon drawer so I used that as the string for the bunting and fixed it at the ends with some tiny buttons. I used some lace, ribbons and some more shiny string for the bottom of the card and added a bow. I then added some more pearls and buttons to finish it off.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
