A Lacy Sunshine Mermaid

Well after a busy day at work, how nice it is to find the time, and the energy (!) to do a quick midweek blog post. I started this card at the weekend, but with one thing and another I didn't get to finish it. I wanted to enter the Lacy Sunshine challenge and it is often the case that I just don't get round to adding the final touches to an almost complete card in time for the challenge deadline.

But that was not to be the case card duly finished and photographed in daylight too (that won't be happening for too much longer in the UK with the winter nights drawing in fast!)
The focal point of my card is this beautiful mermaid, which was a freebie from Lacy Sunshine. I knew immediately the colour scheme that I wanted to  use and then it was just a case of finding the right papers, which I printed from my Polkadoodles Bon Bon Belles CD.

As for those shell beads...well I have had them for years and I have no idea where they came from but they seem to fit the bill, and finally I followed this week's sketch over at Papertake.

So finally, here are those challenges that I would like to enter today:

Thanks for stopping by today.
