Teenage Mermaid card (Cute as a Button image)

Hi Crafty friends,

Here's another card I created for the magazine Australian Papercraft Essentials. There's a picture of the cover below.

The cards all needed to be created using Cute as a Button images. I thought a circular shaped card would be perfect for this image as the image itself is almost round.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

AllSorts - frame it!
As you like it - Trademark style - I love to create girly scene cards that are bright and often shaped.
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - fancy and use pink
Crafts and Me -  anything goes with optional twist: summer memories
Crafty Catz - add bling
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - anything goes with patterned paper 
Creatalicious - anything goes with optional twist: add flowers
Creative Inspirations - seaside, sunshine and summer holidays 
Cute Card Thursday - in the round
Dies r us - Water and/or at the beach plus dies
Julia Spiri -  anything goes with optional twist: at the beach
Lemon Shortbread - anything goes 
The Pencil Case - X is for Xanthic (yellow)
Pile it on - use your favourite colours - pink and teal/blue 
Polkadoodles - summertime
Ribbon Girl - July any image
Simon Says Stamp (Mon) - by the sea/nautical
Simply Papercraft - anything goes
Word Art Wednesday - anything goes  

Have a great day,

XOX Lucy
