Of All The Fish In The Sea...

This is another quick card I made recently. As you can tell I love my Cuttleug "Love Heart" die and have used it again this week! I also love my Anya stamps and this mermaid Anya may be one of my favorites! The black stripes are ribbon and I used my favorite Martha Stewart border punch and my cuttlebug circles embossing folder. I used silver ink to give my love heart some sparkle and dimension and some chalks to liven up the mermaid's skin and tail. Hope you all enjoy it!

Here are some of the challenges I am going to enter this week:
