A Mermaid's Wish

Aurora Wings have a Facebook challenge this month to use blue so I thought I would have a go at colouring in their gorgeous Mermaid's Wish digi. She did take quite a long while to do and although it's nowhere near as good as Alyce Keegan's version, I do love how it came out. This card is also for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #261 Nautical - are mermaids classed as nautical? They belong in the sea so I'm making a loose connection here as I think nautical should be sailors, anchors and boats etc, but some of the DT had sea creatures on their cards, so am guessing mermaids will also be allowed!

Anyway here she is - a rather monochromatic card as well, but I love all the turquoise with the darker blue.
