Make a wish Mermaid card (Polkadoodles image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's been around a couple of weeks since I posted I think but I was busy closing down my craft business so it took a lot of my time, I hope you may have missed me a little bit? I'm back now and I've got loads of cards to show over the coming weeks as I'm more freed up (for now anyway as I'm starting an Interior Design course in 2 weeks, I haven't been to school in about 30 years, yikes lol!)

Anyway, onto my cards now and I love this mermaid from Polkadoodles. She comes pre-coloured, just the background coloured or all black & white. I printed it out with the background coloured as that would take forever to create such a beautiful water look (and I'd never get it looking that good lol) and I coloured just her. I heat embossed some chipboard shells and sea items to give them all a nice colour/shine.

For my card I have used the following Polkadoodles products: 
a mermaid from Meribelle Mermaid and

  15. Wonderful coloring and lay-out. So glad you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I hope you'll join us again soon. I want to leave you with the inspiration of God's Word in 2 Peter 3:9 which says, "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." Have a blessed week.
