Eat Cake Graphics - Mara Mermaid

How's this for a feeling of summer!  I'd love to be floating in that pool where she is! (rather than sitting here in my fleece LOL)

Stamps from Eat Cake Graphics ...
1056-I Mara Mermaid floats
8151-D Happy birthday (fun text)

Coloured with watercolour pencils and some clear gloss and glitter added to her bikini top and to highlights on the water.
Photo frame is from Die-namics; heart is a Paper Smooches die.

This card is also posted over at A Sprinkling of Samples and Techniques blog, where you'll find lots more loveliness from Eat Cake Graphics :)

Wish I could share some of our summer heat with you! Hot and muggy here today. We had to turn the air conditioning on at our house to get a little relief. Your card is so bright and fun! Don't we all wish we could be mermaids for just a few hours?
