Vintage Mermaid ~Thinking of You~ card

Hi crafty friends,

I don't often try vintage style as it's not really my thing but A Day For Daisies images are gorgeous and often I feel inspired to create vintage cards with them. I won some Graph'It Markers and used only them on this image, I loved using them and how they turned out, I dotted her outfit on purpose to give it a scaly look.
