Fresh Brewed Designs DT feature card

It's Wednesday!  I can almost see the
weekend peeking around the corner
from down the street!
I have a card to share with you
today that I created using
Fresh Brewed Designs

I love this pretty little mermaid that Heather created
with the big eyes along with an adorable beach scene.
The month long prize challenge at
Mermaids, Fairies or Fantasy with the option of a box card technique, and this magical little mermaid
was perfect for the pretty coral, pinks and blues
that I was hoping to work with, along with
my mothers pretty crocheted flowers!
I was going for a Shabby Chic look, which isn't
my typical style and
I was having a blast as I worked on roughing up
the edges and added some ink and paint!
I wish I had more time to craft.  I just love to play!
I colored her with copic markers and added
some liquid pearls.
I used Stampin Up cardstock, DP, pearls,
and sentiment.
My mother crocheted the pretty flowers and
the centers are from The Girls Paperie
I added a tiny spool that I wrapped some 
Stampin Up gold and white thread onto.
The corner embellishement is from Wild Orchid Crafts
I painted it white along with some corrugated cardboard
that you can see peeking out of the left corner.
The lace, buttons, butterfly, shell and baubles are from my stash.
I finished my card off with some white paint and sugar glitter.

I hope that you can join in on the fun!
There are lots of fun rubber stamps
and digi images to choose
