Sea view

This card is made using a Whimsical Ink, Queen Kat Art stamp by Maigan Lyn. Please excuse the cutting out, I decided to cut out the inside of the mermaid's tail after she was sitting firmly on the frame and it looks a bit messy. Frame is Sizzix, background (in frame and behind it using Cordinations Whitewash paper) is Cuttlebug embossing, real shells bought locally, ferns is a Martha Stewart punch. Unfortunately the red background turned out to be a mistake, and the gold embossed card looks red at the bottom as it picked up the colour.
Mermaid's pearl necklace and headband is made using Liquid Pearls in pink. Glass fish was from a set bought at a show, make unknown.
Acrylic greeting was from Graphicus and the ribbon from the Philippines I think (don't you just love Ebay?). I made this to go with a jigsaw of one of Maigan's mermaid prints for my Mum's birthday, unfortunately I didn't realise she doesn't like jigsaws!

I am entering this for:
 Daring Cardmakers challenge Pearls
 RosieDees challenge which is fairy tales
Stamping for the weekend - Summer/Travel challenge

Not sure it is good enough for any of them but will do it anyway.
