hey guys
today i have card number 2 using 
this image is so super cute i just love it

Ariela Mermaid

isnt she adorable!

so another 8x8 (can you guess this is my fave size card)....
i found a picture online of the coral rief  , i faded it down in my craft studio, then printed , printed again at almost full colourand cut a strip which i edged with some paper lace i punched.
the lace is from my stash, i added tiny gems to the flower centres.
ribbon from my stash too, the little sea horses are from silhouette studio.
the image is printed onto 160 gms super smooth from that Craft place and coloured with prismacolour pencils .
i cut a shell shape around the image and coloured with pencil to give the shell inner effect
then i finished the whole thing with a couple of fancy pearl corners.
i realy like how this turned out and hope you do to.

morning all
wow i can believe how fast the time is flying,
its new challenge day over on 
 i got this  atc box from That Craft place its actualy an atc box, but as i dont really collect them
 i saw the box and instantly thought it perfect to sit on my desk and put all my little bits and bobs in that im using for the whichever project im working on.

i have to say its the perfect size and i love it!
i put it together glueing it with the cosmic shimmer glue, once dry, i painted the inside with 
some shimmery red paint, also painted the letter, (which danny kindly cut an extra k and y for me)
then i used some prima papers to cover the box.

once the letters had dried i stuck them on with the cosmic shimmer glue 

and finished 
it off with a couple of cut out leaves and some of the red and black Petal Lu 
blooms from the Halloween collection ,
