Sweet Sunday Sketch on a Monday!

Hi - hope your weekend was good. I had a busy weekend, but I did manage to get a couple of cards made.

I don't usually do sketch challenges too often, but when I saw this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch I gave it a whirl.

I used one of the 3 baby mermaids under the sea. With the images being small, it fit perfectly inside the circle of the sketch.

I stamped the mermaid on bella's bestest paper with black memento ink.  Then I coloured with prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.  Paired it up with some pretty papers from Basic Grey Sweet Threads.   Dies used were circles, corner rounder punch and a Marianne's doily border die.
Finished off with some glitter ritz which was applied to her mermaid body and then used regular glitter for the star. I applied some glossy accents to the center of the flowers. Card measures 6 1/4 x 3.5.

Thanks for stopping by today.

ACK - she looks great swimming in the circle here. And I don't think I would have paired floral paper with our beach beauty but it works especially with the frill of the lace border. Thank you for showing us outside the box does work! So glad to see you playing along with the SSSC. I love to give them a whirl because one decision is pretty much done then.
