C4C496 Mermaid Birthday Card

Hello my crafty friends

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog. This month our hostess is Frances Byrne.  Vicki Garrett is joining us as our Guest Designer and you can find Vicki's blog HERE.    


Here is Frances; challenge for the week:
Apparently today is Sandcastle Day, so let's include sandcastles on our card this week ... if you don't have sandcastles, sand or anything beach related will do.

I have actually decided to take a break from doing the Crazy4Challenges cards this month. While I look forward to my paper crafts and this hobby keeps me sane during times of high stress - having to come up with something for a specific theme was proving too much for my brain lately. I just need to go into my craft room and create what I feel like creating, which is what I did for my card today. Then I realized it fit the challenge, so here I am.

I coloured this mermaid during the 30 day colouring challenge (day 26) on Instragram. For that day I coloured two tails only and this full mermaid. You can see the two cards I made with the tails HERE.



I added a little wink of stella to the tail and gold gel pen on her hair. The sequins are also really shiny!



Here is a peek at the inside:



Into my stash with this one.
