Mermaids in December!
We interrupt this Christmas season to bring you thoughts of warm weather and tropical days! I needed a little break from all of the Christmas cards, so when I saw a challenge issued from Charisma Cardz, Dreaming of Summertime, I thought this was a great chance for something different. The colors from Copic Colour Challenge fit in perfect for this tropical theme as well (Chrome Orange, Cerise and Yellow Green). I used the bonus sketch from Michelle Perkett Designs, and this is also her image, Tropical Rhapsody. I used a Martha Stewart branch punch to create my seaweed. My button embellishment started off as clear craft buttons, but I colored them with my copics.
This card is also for the following challenges:
LaLa Land- buttons
Cuttlebug Challenges- sparkle
By the Cute and Girly - Let's go to the Movies (Splash)
I am still sitting here writing this wearing a thick cashmere sweater, but at least I can pretend it is warm and sunny out!
