Mara Mermaid Floats

I had a spare half hour today so thought I'd have another go at the MFT Summer School ... this one is for Lesson 2: Focal Point

This card is to send with a few Euros to my little niece who's off on her holidays shortly.  My cute mermaid is from Eat Cake Graphics ...
1056-I Mara Mermaid Floats
Coloured with watercolour pencils.
My BG is sprayed with cosmic shimmer mist ... I used a waves stencil from Simon Says Stamp, but I think I shouldn't have bothered as I didn't spray enough mist to show up the stencil!  Doh!
I've used some oooooold Dew Drops on this card, haven't used any of those for such a long time!

Your niece is going to love this happy card - and not just because it contains a few euros! Your coloring is fabulous, as usual, and I really like your spattered background. The sequins are a perfect embellishment, too.
