Under the Sea

Under the sea
Under the sea
Darling it's better
Down where it's wetter
Take it from me

Good evening, I hope that you are all enjoying a wonderful week. I wanted to stop by and share a card with you tonight. This card features Little Mermaid Tilda who was part of last year's Bon Voyage collection. She reminds me of Ariel from The Little Mermaid so this time around she has been coloured up with that as inspiration.

I was going for a sort of soft shabby chic look, not sure that I have really pulled that off but I wanted a card with lots of texture and pretty pastels. This is the first time that I have used cheesecloth, I have been loving the texture that it added to the cards that I have been seeing in blogland and wanted to give it a try although it has almost gotten lost under all the layers of floral texture and bling that have been added on top. In the end though, I am really pleased with the way that this card has turned out.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you will leave a little comment so that I will know that you were here.I am getting close to 100 followers now so be sure to keep an eye out here as I think that I will have a little followers candy in the coming days.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
