Mermaids and Sea Shells

Coffee of the Day - Macadamia White Chocolate

Hello! Starting to get my craft back on, so today is my first post back over on the Elisabeth Bell blog.  sure did feel good to get back in my craft room again! :)

Even though my project is late for the current challenge going on over on  The Digi Bells' blog, I still wanted to play along. I mean, WHO could resist a chance to use our adorable Elisabeth Bell images?! I hope you have had the chance to enter your own project, or are in the midst of working on it.

The theme is 'Make a Splash' and this cutey little mermaid image, 'Catch of the Day' seemed the perfect one for my card. my friend, Tammy, owns an Etsy shop that sells Shape EZ card templates. I have used her fun sea shell template here.

I am a goof for all things Basic Grey, so even though the company has retired, I've used their papers (South Pacific) and die here for the shabby feel that I oh, so love! this die (Curly #2) is my 'go to' for waves.  it's a bit quirky & fun, and I absolutely adore it. :) I hope you do, too!

sea horse and sand dollar dies are by Tim Holtz while main image die is by Spellbinders. little fern punches are by Martha Stewart and hopefully look like seaweed as they sit by the actual shells I have added.

ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. netting was distressed with ink to look more shabby and aged.

thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a most fabulous day! :)
