Freshly Made Sketches #40 with Fred She Said

I usually follow the sketches pretty closely, so you may be surprised to see what I’ve done with the sketch today.  The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches, The artwork is all pre-colored images from Fred She Said.  Here’s this weeks sketch:

If you follow me at all, your going to wonder what I was thinking. LOL  For some reason, as soon as I saw the sketch, this image popped into my mind.  Here’s my card:

I’m pretty excited about this card!  Click on it and make it larger:)  I used SU! Dazzling Detail on the fin.  It made the fin kind of warped.  I love it!  I used one Stampin’ Dimensional cut in half for the middle of the “body”.  On the left side near the edge, I used two SU! mini glue dots.  It kinda poofs in the center and the bottom of the fin is raised all by itself.  I wish I could get a really good photo, it looks kind of bland here, but in person it looks really 3 dimensional.  I also used mini glue dots for the plant leaves.  I rolled them up and placed them with my craft knife.  They are raised ever so slightly.

I used three pearls as bubbles in the top right corner.  I printed the “water” paper, Emma the mermaid, and the water plant all from Fred She Said’s store. One of my first “Emmas”.   I printed the “sand” with digital paper from Stampin’ Up!  It’s digital Crumb Cake, with a 60 percent tint.  I printed it, cut it out and then tore it.  The happy birthday is from SU! Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I used my new Framelits, Bitty Banners for the sentiment shape, I cut the left side straight.

Wow, that’s a lot of info!  I got a short nap today and I’m a tad hyper right now. lol I hope you like my card:)  I will have all the supplies listed below.
