Mo's Challenge #20 - A Sketch

It's a new challenge week over at Mo's Challenges and I couldn't resist using this fabulous new mermaid image Mo Manning released recently - her name is Melia. The challenge this week is a sketch - and I hope you can see it in my layout! I've used individual "shells" from my Martha Stewart Daisy Fan deep edge punch and some pearls in place of the corners. I've drenched them in Dazzling Diamonds too - along with some more Dazzling Diamonds on Melia's tail, top and hair accessories - this card sparkles IRL let me tell you!!!! I've also skewed everything slightly sideways for some interest - oh OK - it was really to fit everything in - LOL.

Now Melia is a bit of a redhead here - I couldn't resist as I LOVED Ariel in Disney's The Little Mermaid - and with touches of orange on her tail too she's a very colour co-ordinated mermaid - LOL. The sentiment is from SU, the DP is from Bo Bunny.

Apologies for being around on too many blog visits recently - it's just been one of those weeks - I'll be playing catch-up soon........

Have a GREAT weekend everyone!
