LAD sketch 43

I konw I'm a little late on this--the challenge came out last Monday--but better late than never? Huh? Josyln did a great sketch-she is a minimal layer girl, and I love it! I decided to use the little mermaid stamp from the By the Sea stamp set. I think she is super cute...and my daughter LOVES her!
My card base is one of the new In Colors from Stampin' Up!. This fantastic blue is called Pacific awesome blue!! I stamped my mermiad in a black-noir palette ink, and colored her with an blender pen and the lid of my pacific point blue ink pad. The orange color--her hair included is the Tangerine Tango new In color. I love it!! The Scallop circle is Baja Breeze blue..delightful! I used my Marvy Uchida punches for the scallop, and the tangerine circle. Then the mermaid was punched out with the new 1 3/4" circle punch. I stamped celebrate you from the LAD set Say it in Script. I punched it out with the 1 3/8" circle punch, and then attached it a little over the edge of the card. I then used my paper piercing tool and pierced around the circple punches-to give a little detail. Yes, the mermaid is glittified with Dazzling Diamonds glitter and a little two-way glue pen.

Thanks a bundle for stopping by!! I've got a birthday tomorrow...we're making cupcakes tonight for my daughter's class, so hopefully I can get a photo of what we end up taking in!

Have a great day!!
