Hello Everyone,
I hope you're all having a good week. I've managed a card today inbetween the rowing, cycling judo. .  .!!! 
I've used 'Mermaid' by Kenny K for today's card.

I've coloured her with my promarkers. The background papers are from Craft Creations,a magazine freebie and Papermania.
The ribbon was also a freebie from a magazine, it is really pretty and covered with little white flowers.The gems are from my stash. I've followed the sketch at Papertake weekely, but the young lady who wants this card loves bunting so I added some using a Whimsey die.
I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Papertake Weekly - Sketch
Passion for Promarkers - Underwater
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
KennyK's Krafty Krew - Bunting

Secret Saturday Crafter - Bright & Cheerful

Thank you for taking the time to visit my little blog and for all your lovely comments. They really make my day.
