Magical Mermaids

This card features one of my favourite Sweet Pea stamps.

The beautiful bubbly background paper is by October Afternoon, and I cut the quote from a Kaisercraft paper. I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noir pens and added some glitter to the butterflies. The lacy die cut is by Marianne, and the bunting is a Joanna Sheen Signature die.

I used two Martha Stewart leaf punches to create the seaweed/coral cluster around the oyster shell (which I cut from two scalloped oval die cuts) I added some detail to the shell with a Spectrum Noir marker. I then placed three adhesive pearls in the shell.

I placed a strip of ribbon and lace down my card and added the quote to the top with 3d foam pads.
