Mermaid of Star

Happy Friday, my friends! =) It's release day over at A Day For Daisies and this week's released is called Childhood. Here is my card made using one of the new images.


We are combining this week's release with a new challenge over at A Day For Daisies Blog. The new challenge theme is to incorporate a die cut in your project.


I used the beautiful Mermaid of Star for my card. She is printed on Papertrey Ink's Rustic White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size. I added Diamond Stickles to her tail for a little sparkle.


The patterned paper is from Hello Summer 6x6 Paper Pad by Echo Park and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. A couple of sequins were added really just for fun! =) They are from Ellen Hutson and Neat & Tangled.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members came up with for the challenge using the new images here and you can find all the newly released images here. Hope you can join us on the challenge! =)


Hope you have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!
