Give Thanks

I've been wanting to make a mermaid card for a while, just haven't done it for what ever reason...So, tonight I decided to (to quote Nike) "just do it!"  I chose to go with purples instead of blues like I normally tend to lean towards for mermaids.  I used some glitter paper, foam shell stickers, ribbon flowers, lace, pearls, gems, string pearls...I love adding tons of stuff when I can.  :)  This image is from The Paper Shelter.  She is called Playing Under The Sea.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.    She was colored using chalk, ink and gel pens.  TIP***  When coloring with glitter gel pens, if you top it off with some glossy accents, it makes it sparkle more!

Thanks for looking!
