Have A Fin-Tastic Day!

Its rare that I am inspired by challenges, but this one caught my eye. I had entered last week's All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge as a fluke (just so happened to make a card that fit the criteria), when I saw the challenge for this week... a color challenge using Chocolate, Aqua, and Kraft colors. I love love love this color combo, so I kept this challenge in the back of my mind. This is what I came up with... just got this new Mermaid Emma holding a starfish digi and thougth she would be perfect for this challenge. Now, she actually comes in another version with seaweed, a rock, etc., but I opted for the image that just had her in it. Since there was no other scenery, I had to make my own... I thought my distress inks would provide the perfect ocean look for the card and mounted it on the chocolate brown. The card base was cut from Kraft cardstock. I then handcut my rock for her to sit on and laid her on top of it. Found some old Doodelbug sea creature stickers and used it for the rest of the scene. The sentiment was from one of the CC's summer sentiments set. Here's a close up of the mermaid. I think she's just darling! Hope you have a Fin-Tastic week! Supplies:
