Just ask any Mermaid ......

Happy Tuesday everyone ! Are you making all those big plans for "Turkey Day" I can't believe it is just a week away time is just flying by.  We have a new challenge for you at CMC Challenge group the theme is "Colors of the Sea" we are being sponsored by the very talented Michelle Perkett.  Be sure to stop by her store and see what she has I am sure you will find something you like.

My image is colored with copics, with stickles added to her for shimmer.  I used the my cuttlebug folder bubbles.   Thought this was the perfect net like fabric to add the little shells and water bubbles on.  The little piece of Abalone on the edge was just the perfect finishing touch.  So what are you waiting for break away from those Christmas cards for a minute and come on play with us.

I will enter this into the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge - U is for under the sea
Inky Impressions - Glitter it up
Paper Crafting Journey - #23 embossing
Crafty Catz - use a digital image

That is it for me today have a great week !
