Dreamy Mermaid

Hello! I have made a quick card today (well, quick once I figured out what I wanted to do - that part took FOREVER!) that uses one of Elaine Cox's beautiful mermaid images (called Dreamy Sandcastle), one piece of cardstock for the card, one piece of DP and 2 ribbons. I am happy with the final, simple look, but I spent hours putting things on and taking things off! I finally decided to just let the sweet mermaid be the star!

The Details:
Stamps: Elaine Cox's Dreamy Sandcastle (Plate 52), sentiment from ching chou kuik's Plate 20 - both from Sweet Pea StampsPaper: Fancy Pants Designs, Nautical Blue Dark (Prism), White for image (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: Y15,Y17,YR04,YR09, E08
Tail: R24,R29,R39,E08.E18
Sky: B91,BG10Water: B95,B97,B99
Sand: E30,E31,E33,E35
Misc: Ribbon (brown - SU, Scarlet Jewel - Papertrey Ink)

My Hint for the Guess the Baby Pic contest: I liked to wear red even then!

Beautiful card. I love the simple look! That's how most of my cards end up... even though, like you, I spend hours putting things on and taking them off again...
