A Card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge

Good Afternoon Everyone, again I have been very slow posting a card, Ive sort of lost my mojo I find I really not in the mood for card making, last week I was asked to make samples and that motivated me to work but this week I really not in the least finding the urge to get myself into gear. Maybe it was because so much went wrong last week that I was so wrapped up with the stress of that, that my mojo went of for a holiday. Anyway I did get around to creating this card today its for the Sugar Bowl Sketch Challenge and for the Sugary Sunday one on Facebook. Its one of Funky Kits gorgeous mermaids and I stamped her onto white card before using my copic pens to colour her. I also put some glitter on the tails of both the mermaid and the seahorse.
I then cut her out with a large rectangle die from Spellbinders and the two papers are from one of the Maya paper packs, I used the darker blue paper for my first mount and distressed the edge of it, I then used a lighter on on the other mount and distressed the edge for that one to.
Ive created the card as the sketch required and then used three buttons with bakers twine tied in knots in the holes and a seahorse charm on the side.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Hi Shirley, I love this image and you have done her proud. Wonderful colour and design detail. I think its the time of year as I have found inspiration has vanished at the tail end of this week.
