Faery Ink Mermaid Birthday Besties

Good morning and welcome to another inspiration post from me for Faery Ink. I am using the gorgeous Mermaid Birthday Besties digi stamp to create this fabulous seashell shaped card. You can also find this image in the Mermaid Birthday Party Pack.

After playing around with the layout for a while I finally decided to make a little bit of a pop up on the bottom mermaid so that she would stand up when the card is opened. I also added some seaweed and fish die cuts along with a couple of sentiments. I had lots of fun making this card and love how it came out!
