Shabby Chic Mermaid card (Lacy Sunshine image)

Hi everyone,

This is my final card of the day, I hope you like it. The beautiful mermaid image is from Lacy Sunshine and she was so much fun to colour. I glittered up the water as it was a little too blue. I have used a lovely cream flower and pearls from my company, Flourish with a Bling, who are having a 50% off sale right now (see below). I added some white glitter to the little glass bottle and there's a little charm and some shells too. 

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout May, everything is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage! If you're order is over $200AUD we will pay half the shipping (international orders).
