It's Always Great to SEA You

It's Wednesday and time for another new sketch challenge from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Another fun one, if I may say so. I love sketches to begin with, and when they give me the opportunity to use us some of my designer paper scraps, bonus!!

Our sponsor this week is Stamp Fairy. I am always excited when they are our sponsor because I love using their images. Up for grabs is a $10 gift certificate for Stamp Fairy -- boy I wish I could win!!!!! We all are winners though because Stamp Fairy is having a 50% off sale thru the end of the month!! So fabulous!!!

And here's my card using one of the adorable Stamp Fairy Mermaids. I used both Copics and Spica glitter pens to color this lovely up. It's hard to see the sparkle, but believe me, in real life, Miss Mermaid is full of shimmer. It works so well with the shimmer of the ribbon, thanks to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Club. I don't own a lot of prima flowers so I went with one of my MFT flower dies for along the right side. And do I dare point out one last thing...I USED PURPLE ON A CARD!!!!! AND I LIKE IT!!!!! Hope you can join us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Oh Linda, thanks so much for your great posting this week. Wow what a great Mermaid I just love your colours used and your flower embellishment. Pretty design papers. It's funny that your boys are going back to school and mine are about to go on holiday in a couple of weeks time. Take care and have a great week.
Hugs

Wow, you ARE a busy poster on Wednesdays! Loved seeing all your cards ... my favorite was the lady wearing two different shoes (I've done that before!). You have a wonderful style! Can't wait to get to know you better.

This is so sweet and the colors you used are all so perfect! Those flowers are absolutely gorgeous with the pearl centers. Thanks for the tip on Doodle Pantry - I did enter!
