Wow! What a stunning card. Love the way you've coloured the mermaid and the way you've used the die cuts to make a scene to frame her. The frame around her looks awesome too! Great card :) xx

Sorry to hear that you've been poorly Lorraine, I hope by now you are feeling much better, and don't worry about commenting, we all understand, and it's sometimes more stressful trying to catch up.
Your card is stunning, sweet mermaid and your sea colours and embellishments are wonderful, Love it, Kate x

I really like the dies you have used with this one Rainey! The frame is beautiful - the two stalks of flowers are very 'sea' like especially in that color. And I love the pearls lying around - creative placement!
