July 21, 2014 - My Besties International DT Challenge - Mermaids

Happy Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to my blog where this week our My Besties International DT challenge is using mermaids.  I have always loved mermaids and it brings back memories of Walt Disney cartoons/movies with mermaids.  It also brings back very old memories of the movie with Darrell Hannah when she played a mermaid.  Man that was a long time ago and I am dating myself for sure.  I am surprised that I can remember the name of the actress but can't remember the name of the movie.  Guess I'm having one of those senior moments.  :-)  

Back to our challenge.  I have chosen one of Sherri Baldy's beautiful mermaids that I got from her Etsy Store.  She is IMG 696 and you can purchase her HERE

I fell in love with this mermaid the minute I saw it.  Hope you like my card below.

The theme of using mermaids just called out to me to use aqua's and greens, so you can see that is what I did.  I also wanted to use something that truly came from the sea, so I found some small seashells and used those instead of using flowers that I usually put on my cards.  Somehow, flowers just didn't seem to fit the challenge.  LOL  

Supplies Used
Memory Box Dies
Derwent InkTense Pencils
Digital Sentiment - Whimsey
Waves and bubbles - JoLees
Papers and aqual rinestones - from  my stash
Corner Punch - Stampin Up

Thank you all once again for visiting my blog and I would encourage you to join us in our challenge of Mermaids.  Sherri has many different ones and I would love to see your beautiful creations using them.  If you would like to join our Bestie International DT challenge you can by clicking HERE

Happy Stamping,


  1. Hi Pat, thanks for your recent visit and sweet comments. We miss you too! Gosh, it's been a long time no see. This is an adorable card with your sweet little mermaid, and the colors are just perfect beach colors too. Loved the seashells, and the wonderful way you have used the MB dies. Very dressy. An adorable card. Hope all is well with both of you too. TFS & Hugs
