Glitter and Glam on SquiggleFly Challenge #18-WINNER

This weeks challenge at the Squiggle Fly website is to use Stickles (or any other form or glitter glue) somewhere on your project. They want you to use one of their images so I chose this adorable Mermaid-I just Luv her hair!  To win a prize you must do so, but it is not required to participate.
I made a Criss Cross Card with a band circling it to keep it closed. Some of the details of the card features are:  

  • Starfish paper on the band, baker's twine and Fish buttons dangling
  • Gloss finished "Seaweed" print paper on the flaps
  • and this printed paper cut out and used individually as floating seaweed on foam dots
  • Blue and Green Stickles used  on her tail, Platinum Stickles on her sea shell top, and copper Stickles woven through her wavy hair
  • Aqua Embossed Bubble handmade paper to simulate the bubbles in the ocean as a background
Had a great time making this card!  Hope you enjoy it and come back to visit real soon~Carolyn
