Waverly the Mermaid

I had a coffee and cake date with two of my good friends this morning, but managed to squeeze in a little crafting time before I went. (I didn't have coffee, I had a strawberries and cream cooler at Costa's with a white chocolate blondie! Mmmmm!)

This card is for Lacy Sunshine's Challenge to use die cuts/punches and for their Facebook challenge to use the Waverly Sea Kissed Mermaid digi. I'm also entering this card into Open Minded Crafting Challenge #11 to use a fairytale or fantasy character.

And here she is... Isn't she adorable? Couldn't get a photo without the shine on all the gems though, but this was the best of the 9 I took!
