I choose to use this darling mermaid from ScrapNDipity Jewel of the Sea as I wanted to challenge myself with a fantasy mermaid and I thought it would work well with our photo inspiration.  First of all I had fun coloring her with copic markers, then trimmed her up so she would fit on my A2 card.  I used some shaded blue DP for my background and then went to work on my embellishments, what fun.  I used sea shells, died cheese cloth, die cut sea horses, rain drops, die cut anchor with cooper twine.
Here's your hop order.

I love your card, Shirley! I thought she was a mermaid at first but I see she's a cute little sea creature! Love that pink hair--she looks awesome!
Take care!
