Hugs, fishes and mermaid kisses….

Hello everyone!!  Today I’ve got a couple birthday cards to share with you to kick off our first Design Team Creative Challenge over at Craftin Desert Divas!! Birthday cards are always something one needs a lot of…at least I do!!  Making multiples to have stashed away is always great especially when you are in a pinch.  I’m pretty famous for looking at the calendar and having an “oh no” moment when I see it’s someones birthday and realize I don’t have a card made or set aside.  Oopsies!!

So when it comes to making multiple cards, I like to keep things pretty simple.  I especially love to utilize all the “white space” and make my main focus on a specific image.  For these cards it happens to be this lovely mermaid from the Craftin Desert Diva’s Mermaid Lagoon set.  Isn’t she just darling?!  I then framed her out with some distress inks.  I really wanted a big sentiment so paired a couple different ones together.  Using two from the Mermaid Lagoon set and the word “celebrate” from the Kindness set.  And last, I added a couple sequins from the Lilac set to finish my cards off.

If you are interested in seeing how I colored my mermaid, you can find that video HERE.
