The Little Mermaid

Sooooo, our holiday is booked for December 2015.  Only problem is, my husband won't tell me where we're going.  How am I supposed to make myself a fabulous holiday wardrobe if I don't know where I'm going I ask?!!!??!?!??  He NEEDS to tell me.  I hate not knowing things, which means I hate surprises, and he know this, so he deliberately doesn't tell me things just to annoy me,  Then, to top it off, because he wanted  to play on his Xbox/PS3 when he got back from the travel agents, I got kicked upstairs into my craft room . . .  grrrrrr.  

Benefit of being in my craft room - I made a few cards and it is one of those I will share with you now:

I stamped and coloured up this LOTV mermaid a couple of weeks back, but hadn't turned it into a card.

This little lady is stamped in black memento and coloured with promarkers.  I think I am still preferring my distress inks, but I do get the old promarkers out every now and again.  After all, it's where I started!  To finish the image, I added a little bit of glitter to her wings (should mermaids have wings? are they in fact supposed to be something else?).

Anyway, I decided this afternoon to make this into a card.

I used a 5x5 card again and used papers all from an LOTV paper pack, with some pink card as a base.  

I added some extra detail to the image panel.  I added some faux stitching (which went a little wrong) and I stamped an LOTV label using my new rose memento ink.  I then added a little pale green flat backed pearl.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
