Purple-haired Mermaid card (Hannah Lynn image from Crafts & Me)

Hi everyone,

I was going to go to bed but couldn't resist showing you this card I created using a Hannah Lynn image from Crafts and Me. I really love this image, wasn't sure how she'd go with purple hair hehe but I like how it turned out.

I glittered her up and also used some glitter paper for mounting and the die cuts (butterflies and vines). 

The gorgeous pearl and purple half pearls are from my company, Flourish with a Bling. We have a huge range of pearl packs in a rainbow of colours.

Flourish with a Bling have a massive Stocktale sale for June - Every product is just $2 !! All throughout June, everything is $2, no exceptions!! 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!
