Ocean Motion

First of all, I want to wish the lovely, talented Karen a very happy birthday today.
Karen makes some great cards and wonderful scrapbook pages, take a look at her blog. She is also a member of the design team for Scrapology.

I made Karen a mermaid birthday card, which I hope has arrived with her by now.

I used scrapbook pages from Imaginise (Splash Dance - Bathing Beauties and Ocean Motion). I also used white card for stamping the image onto and white and aqua Bazzill and some silver Miri card. The image is from Kraftin' Kimmie's Mermaid set and this one is called 'Nerissa' and is available from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and added a touch of Stickles Glitter Glue for sparkle and Perfect Pearls all from Cardinal Colours.
The tiny coloured shells are actually beads from a necklace one of the children had when they were younger.

 I raided the mermaid on 3-D foam pads. The greeting is a Basic Grey Rub-on.

The charms and ribbons were from my stash.

Happy birthday and have a wonderful day Karen. x

  3. Thank you Lynn so much for the gorgeous card - it is so beautiful IRL. Sorry I've not thanked you sooner - We've only just got back today from a week away in Lincs so I've only just opened the card which arrived while I was away.
