Leela Merbean......

 Hello my Crafty Friends!!!

I finished up making this mermaid card for my
friend's up coming birthday this week. This is a 
digital stamp by The Greeting Farm called
Leela Merbean.  She is my Favorite merbean
of the bunch!! I colored her up with my Copics and 
I used lots of clear Wink of Stella glitter pen all
over her fins and crown but the picture does it no 
justice on showing all that sparkly shine!!!


I started out with the intentions of making
this into a shaker card but I took a different route
instead.  I Love the way it turned out and I hope my 
friend does too!!  I have seen other people make
pull out tags on their cards and tried my hand at 
that.  I saw this random saying online and wrote
it down and computer generated it and cut it
out with my Tags A Lot die by Mama Elephant.


I am entering this card into 7 challenges:
