Fun in the Sun!

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope that you had a great weekend! We spent yesterday at a pool party with a bunch of family friends. After a day of soaking up the sun and cooling off in the water, I was inspired to start this card. It is for Jen's Sketch For You To Try over on her blog. Her SFYTT Sisters (who has also provided me with an abundance of inspiration) have had some beautiful creations with sweet mermaid images from a company called Your Next Stamp. I don't have any stamps from this company,! However, I do have this delightful mermaid image from Pink Cat Studio so I set off to work. My little mermaid girl was colored up with Copic Markers (B0000, B02, C1, C3, C5, E000, E00, E01, E29, E37, R20, Y21, Y35, YR00, YR15, and YR18.) Then I applied Star Dust Stickles to give her lots of sparkle. The colors came from a piece of Crate paper that I found in my stash. To go with the sketch, I added a piece of Making Memories polka dotted paper and a few Making Memories buttons. I used my Janome Sew Mini for the zig-zag stitching that attaches these papers to some Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie. I also used a square of Pumpkin Pie with my Nesties to get the scalloped square. The blue square is a piece of Core'dinations card stock that I embossed with my 'Bug. Then I added a sentiment from A*Muse to finish off the sketch.

Enjoy your Monday and thank you so much for stopping by for a visit...Toodles! :D

You must love summer when you have time to stamp. I love seeing several posts a week from you and I love this card. It's a great layout and image and you did a really nice job with the patterned paper and colors. Love it!
