Rainbow Mermaid by Ching-Chou Kuik

Hi everybody!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  This is my last DT card for this month which I made for Ching-Chou Kuik's Facebook challenge.  The theme is "Happy Christmas/Happy Birthday".  I love mermaids and so I chose the gorgeous "Rainbow Mermaid", found here:

 I love to make shaped cards so I thought that this free seashell clipart would compliment that beautiful image perfectly.  I have coloured her with Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils.  I fussy cut the cute little fish (which was a challenge - LOL!) 

Ching-Chou also has a blog challenge.  If you enter one of her challenges, or both, you may win some beautiful images.  Why not join in the fun?

That's all from me today.  Enjoy your day!  Hugs, Lori xx
