A Card for the Sugar Bowl

Good Morning All, well the sun is out and on the whole is quite warm, though Im not sure I would want to strip of in it. But my card today is for this fortnights Sugar Bowl "Wet, Wet, Wet" and sketch challenge, and I have used one of Funky Kits Mermaid stamps, this was stamped onto white card then I used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a grand oval Nestabilitie Die to cut it out and used one of the new ones for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and and has been mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of aquamarine card with one of two papers from the Sweetshoppe Digi "Medsea" paper set the first being a water pattern and the second a spot one for the second mount.
I then positioned the sketch sideways so that I could place my image along the center of the card with the sentiment below on the right. To finish of I have used the "Loopy Rings" die from Memory Box to create the illusion of water bubbles.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Hey Girlfriend! Sorry I have not been around life has been so busy for me. Trying to get outdoors things done before snow comes, hope winter is just like last year it was a nice one but every year it is different. Lot of birthdays this month also. I love that funky mermaid stamp and the colors with the baby turtle it is just adorable. Have to tell me where you find envelopes for a 6x6 card? Also tell me how you cut out the mermaid and baby turtle with the die and it did not cut their hand and fin off???
Hugs, Patricia

Hi Shirley

This is the first time I have seen that "loopy die" (does that mean I am not getting around blogland enough I wonder ?!?!?).

It looks great and is perfect alongside your cute image.

I hope all is good with you and hubby and those newly weds are super happy!

Love Jules xx
