I can finally post this card!  I made it for my daughter's birthday and had to wait until she received it!  This one was so much fun to make and I went a bit overboard I think, lol!  I colored the mermaid ages ago with my Prisma colored pencils and Gamsol, then added some glitter to her bottom body and her starfish, but it's hard to see it in the picture.  The oval was cut with my Nestabilities and I sponged the edges with ink.  The wave was cut with my Cricut from the Life Is A Beach cartridge.  The "coral" is from some stash I found in my Mom's old pile of craft stuff.  It's plastic coated with glitter, weird stuff but perfect for what I used it for.  I added the gold charms, ric-rac and the pearl as a finishing touch.  Glad to say she loved it!
