Aqua Marina - Sugar Nellie DT

Hello everyone :o)

It's my day to post on the Sugar Nellie blog today, and I thought I'd use one of the lovely mermaids from the Under The Sea collection, as I've not used one for a while.

I'm not at all happy with my colouring - I was at the shivering stage of this rotten cold, and it was a bit difficult to control the pens lol!  And I had the most disastrous day's crafting - I even put one of my dies through the Ebosser the wrong way round and cut a hole in the magnetic shim... sob!

Items Used
Scalloped card blank - Joanna Sheen
Stamp - Sugar Nellie Aqua Marina - Funky Kits
Colouring - copics
Papers - NEW Prima Believe - MCH
Nestabilities Floral Ovals dies
Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No5 stamps
Nestabilities Labels 5 dies
Whimsy corner die
Sentiment - LOTV
Flower - NEW Prima Divine Daisies - MCH
NEW resin flowers (don't think this colour is listed yet) - MCH

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Crafty Catz - bingo (kraft, ribbon, flowers)

Well I've been very lazy so far today, so I suppose I'd better go and do something!  Hope you all have a lovely day :o)
