Kimono Butterfly Mermaid

This is my second post for the day - if you are here to see me Sweet November Sneak Peek, please scroll down!

Hi! I just wanted to make a quick post to show you a Sweet Pea card I made! This is ching-chou kuik's Kimono Butterfly Mermaid (sheet 19, Plate 54). I think she is so beautiful and she was so much fun to color! I again used my Twinkling H2O's for the background. I have gone from hating them and wishing I had not spent the money on hem to LOVING them! They make a super fun and easy background! For the "frame" around her, first I cut a 3.25 square using a Martha Stewart edge and matching corner punch. I turned it on it's edge like a diamond shape and put it behind her. That didn't seem like quite enough, so I punched 4 more corners and trimmed them off of the square and glued them on top of the image..
