Tilda all in Pink

This is a commissioned card done for one of my yoga buddies. She asked me to make a card for her five year old grand daughter using pinks. So I used papers from Stampin Up and the Mermaid Tilda from last years Summer collection. I have to say, this is one set that I use over and over again. I still have to make another Mermaid card for my sons girlfriends niece. So hope you don't get tired of this image since you will proably see it again. I promise I'll do something different. This time, I used an older sketch from Friday Sketchers. Told you I love those sketches and use them over and over again. I also took out my Cricut and used the Animal Kingdom cartridge cutting the fish bowl at 4" and followed this theme both inside and out.

For the inside of the card. I used a leftover sticker from Jolee's

I used a shell from the Recollections Collection, I knew I wanted to use this as a focal point for my flowers

This fits the following challenge:
A Sppon Full of Sugar All Creatures Great & Small - Well I hope my Fish Charm & Sea Horse Count

Image: Mermaid Tilda
Paper: All paper from Stampin Up
Extras: Doohicky Swirl Die, Wild Orchid Craft Flowers, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Ribbon, Fish Charm, Shell from the Recollection Collection
Image Colored with Copics: E11,02,00,000, R20,Mermaid Tail: R85,83,81, Hari Y21,23
E97.99 I also used some of my pencils to darken around the edges.

As always, thanks for looking and now that you stopped by would love for you to leave a comment
