Aloha Mermaid!

I'm back to crafting!! It has been nearly 3 weeks since creating anything and it feels good to finally have something to show you! I did do 20 tags last week for a swap but forgot to take a picture....go figure! In the past 3 weeks I've been doing alot of other stuff with family and friends so I have certainly kept busy! Also been buying some new craft goodies! YAY! I will be posting about that later!
So onto my card...I just love this gorgeous mermaid from Karen's Doodles! Colored her up with Copics and Prismas with OMS. Added some of my new Viva Decor for that glittery bling and use a sentiment from a cheapie dollar set that I think came from Michaels. The squiggles/bubbles at the top is a stamp from CDS which worked out perfect with a little glossy accent on the bubbles. The paper is just scraps and the yellow is embossed with my new tiny bubbles folder. I just love how this card came together and the colors are really soothing!
