A Mermaid's wish (Elaine Cox image)

Hi Crafty Friends, 

Out of the 4 cards to show you tonight 3 of them are male cards, that is so unlike me! Anyway, hopefully this is girly enough to make up for the lack of female cards today. I coloured up a beautiful image from Elaine Cox (I don't have a link as I won this through Sweet Pea Stamps that are now closed). I love using cheesecloth material with mermaids, it just seems like an ocean type item somehow.
