Mermaid Thank You Card

This mermaid is from ADFD - isn't she gorgeous! She's currently available as a freebie here. I colored the image with Promakers and added some light blue pearls and baby blue Stickles around the edges. Afterwards I realized I had made a mistake. What I though was her fin is actually her hair. I don't think it matters and hope you'll agree with me... I attached the image to a background of blue Coredination paper. I used a Darice chevron embossing folder. I used sandpaper to make the pattern show better. I added a piece of cheesecloth for texture - it's been sprayed it with turquoise Perfect Pearls mist. The seashell is made with a Marianne die, I sprayed the kraft paper with pearl Glimmer Mist, the sparkle doesn't show in the photo, but it's really nice in real life. The sentiment ("thank you" in Norwegian) is made with letter stickers from Storyteller.

This is gorgeous Pia, I think the way you have coloured the image is fine, I wouldn't have realized your mistake if you hadn't said anything. Your embossed and sanded background is perfect along with the cheesecloth and seashell embellishment.
I hope your LOTV goodies soon arrive.
