Mermaids By the Sea

I've been asked to make a few cards for a someone at work one card specifically with this image since it is for her daughter. She just fell in love with the mermaid. So I followed the Sketch at Sketch Saturday, and the color theme at the Copic Creations which this week is to use colors from the "cool" family. I choose blue greens and this is what I came up with. I tried by best to get a better shot but the light and camera were not cooperating...Sorry :(

This fits the following Challenges:

Copic Creations
Sketch Saturday

A close up of the flowers:

Image: Tilda
Papers: All papers from the DCWV Linen Closet paper pack
Extras: Wild Orchid Flowers, Doohicky die, Sizzix leaf die, Pearls, SU Word Window Punch
Copics: Face:E02,00,000, Hair: E25,49,53,59 Mermaid Bottom/Bra: BG10,11,13,R20

As always, Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog
