I Believe in Mermaids

Mornin', y'all!  I almost typed "mermaid, y'all!"  Because today's card has a mermaid on it.


The mermaid has Wink of Stella on her so she's all sparkly, even though you can't see it at all in the picture (it's overcast here and it's notoriously difficult to photograph anything sparkly on a card).  And she's a triple challenge over-achieving mermaid.  First off, What Will You Stamp? has cycled back around to a stamp set I own:


So yep, there's my stamp set sorted.  Then I used the layout from this week's CASE the Designer challenge at Global Design Project:


And last of all I added in this week's Paper Players color combination:


Once I had those three elements, the card came together pretty quick.  I like that since I never know how long naptime will last :)

I've got breakfast in the oven (have I mentioned that I'm obsessed with apple cinnamon baked oatmeal...and generally I think oatmeal only belongs in cookie form!) so I'm going to try to vacuum up some dog hair while I wait for that to bake.  Cheers, y'all!

Stamps:  Magical Mermaid, Marbled, Seaside Shore
Ink:  Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate

So are what looks like stitching on the ovals -- are those just punches or are they actually stitched? Looks like they are. Pretty. I like that effect. Very nice!

I like your stamped background. The starfish and shells are a sweet way to continue the ocean theme in your card and use the challenge colours. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week.
