Mermaid Tilda




Wow what a wonderful Summer it's been hot hot hot. The sad part is my 10 year old is in hockey camp all week. 8 hours a day at the arena and it's sunny and hot outside. I had some time last night to make a card and wanted to challenge myself with the Magnolilicious highlites challenge paper only - OMG I wanted to add lace, flowers, pearls. Instead I made my own flowers and used some sparkly cardstock to bling it up a bit. The flourish dies are Whimsy Stamps and the Green flowers Magnolia. Thanks Trish for the heart and let me stamp Mermaid Tilda! Also the theme at TOMIC is round cards. The gorgeous die shape and stand are from the Die Cut Dreams Shop. Tilda is coloured with distress inks. I am entering Crafting for all Seasons - ocean and Deep Ocean - sea.
