Merry Mermaid Christmas

This adorable little mermaid image is from Lacy Sunshine.  She is Peppa Mint Mer.  My goal with this card was to make an nontraditional Christmas card using traditional colors.   I'm thinking I may have succeeded.

I added tons of pearls, some gems, flowers, shells, glitter tulle, decorative moss, gemed sprig and a stick pin I made.  The sentiment is mine.  This was a blast to make!

Thanks for looking!
