"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment."

It's summer - and here's "Mermaid Gillian"! :)

This is my second post today! Here's another card, with another Prairie Fairy Designs precoloured image. :) Please give credit to the fairy queen, Roberta, for the FAB colouring!! :D I printed the cute image on white Bazzill Canvas.

I started on this card last night and finished up today. "Mermaid Gilly" has pearl earrings and I also added up a little Stickles glitter (Diamond colour) to the starfish in her hair. I used different design papers: from MME, Imaginisce and Carolee's Creations. Here are different QK dies used, too: Starfish, Crab, Sailboat and Sand Castle (inside and back). The clouds and shells are cut from design papers; from Imaginisce (the clouds) and Carolee's Creations (the shells)... :)

Here's what the inside looks like.

And the back. Matching colours/papers. :)

I want to show the difference in colour between photos taken without flash and with flash. The ones taken in outdoor daylight, above, are more correct in colour reproduction.

Front.

Front, with the back showing also.

Inside.

I had a real good time "cooking up" this card! I'm happy I had these fab papers on my shelf and these QK dies lying around! And thank God for Roberta's precoloured image, when I didn't feel I wanted to colour one in, myself! I tried to do a quick card, but well - I started yesterday and finished up today!.. LOL :)

I'd love to enter the following challenges with my "Mermaid Gillian" card:

The Shabby Tea Room: Favorite Things. (Pearls, stickles). (July 3rd).

I hope you all have a relaxing, good weekend! :)
Hugs, hugs and even more hugs,
Hege

Truly beautiful card Hege! Love the way you made it look like she is in the waves! And thanks for letting us know where you got the dies for the starfish and clouds...I have been seeing them all over blogland and thought they were some kind of Cricut cartridge...lol. Now I know I need to look for the Quick Kutz!
