Kraftin kimmie challenge card

Another week come round already. Back to work today. I'm counting the days until Friday when I am off for 2 whole weeks, bliss!
First card of the week is for this weeks Kraftin Kimmie challenge This time it's in the form of a sketch from the very talented Elaine Hughes Having a sketch makes the card so much quicker as I am a real dither when it comes to deciding on a layout myself.  I sit and look at papers and stash for ages before I make my mind up. So having the layout already decided means I can actually get this entered at a reasonable time rather than with an hour or two to go (like last weeks!)
The stamp is a fab mermaid called Nerissa. She is coloured with Copics and cut out using a circle nestie  The papers are bazzill card stock for the layering and some papermania turquoise handmade paper. The dark blue paper was lying loose so I cant remember who its from but it reminded me of fish scales to it seemed appropriate. I used some glass pebbles for bubbles and a Spellbinders fancy label for the sentiment. I created the birthday fishes sentiment using my Xyron design runner and xdr pc link as I dont have any of Kraftin Kimmies fishy sentiments
Thanks for popping by for a look and a huge thankyou to those who are following my blog. Knowing there are lovely like minded people out there makes me feel less like I'm talking to myself 

Copics used
