Magical Mermaid Birthday Card

The Make Waves - Scrapbooking stamp set has such a lovely mermaid that I thought would make a great birthday card for a lovely little girl.  I chose Pattern 23 from the Make It From Your Heart 4 book for the design of my card. It has a simple 2.5" circle overlapping a 1/2" strip. What I like about the sketches is their simplicity with examples adorned with more elements and embellishments. I liked the way the mermaid could overlap the circle. I love grouping components.

My background panel is a Cricut cut I resized from the Artbooking cartridge. You can use my cut file if you'd like.  I colored the mermaid with copics, then easily fussy cut her. The silver embossed sentiment comes from a retired stamp set, Birthday Princess.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Cardz 4 Galz #65 - Stamping
Crafty Catz #405 - anything goes with optional birthday theme
Cut It Up Challenge #142 - anything goes with a die cut
