Yet another thank you card (hope they like mermaids!)

Hi, everyone, wow! I,ve just discovered Crafts & Me, what a fab shop, great choice of stamps, both rubber & digis (I can feel my bank balance shrinking by the second, lol).  I downloaded a few digis the other day & the one I'm using today is called Hidden Treasure (my something new for the fab 'n' funky challenge).  Sooo lovely to colour, well, kept me quiet for a while :)

I,ve used promarkers & flexmarkers to colour my image & blue, white & silver acrylic pearlescent paints around my papers, card & the lace.  The papers are from Joanna Sheens Precious Petals cd rom, once again (I can't help it, this cd rom is fantastic, if only for the lush papers) and also blueberry pie from Papermanias capsule collection.

The lace I've used (which isn't very clear in piccie, sorry, is and old curtain, lol.  I also found a packet full of the dolphin buttons the other day when I was having a sort out :)
Basically I didn't know when to stop with this one, all the other items are from my stash, oh & garden, chuckle.

Thanks so much 4 looking today

Wow what a stunning card Maria, such beautiful details and colouring. I love these images, am making a card with one of these at the moment - great minds...! My mojo seems to have left me right now and I can't seem to make a card I'm pleased with. I hope you and your family had a good Christmas and New Year and are keeping safe in this awful weather we're having.
