It's been a while since I managed to join in with a Pattie's Creation challenge and just had to when I saw the cute photo of Pattie's Grand-daughters who looked like mermaids in bright orange lifejackets! So I've used the mermaid image, coloured her with Promarkers and I've added a few bubbles of glitter glue.

All the papers I found in my box of left overs and are a mix of Funky Hand and Polkadoodles. The image has been layered onto some pearlescent paper which was a recent generous donation from Lynsey!

The ribbon and flowers and brads are all from my stash and I was glad to be able to use some of the orange brads as I seem to have quite a few left from a mixed pack! I've used the Sweet Stop Sketch for inspiration:

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
