Crafts Galore Encore April 2018

It's the first of April so,
Happy April Fool's Day! I hope you don't get caught out by any tricks.

Welcome to my April post for 
Thank you to everyone who joined in with March's challenge. The winners are on the challenge blog's 'winner's page'. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. A full list of rules are on the challenge blog.

Our theme every month is the popular
"Anything Goes"

Our sponsor this month is:
Star Stampz
who are offering the winner a choice of three digis from their store.

I have made a 7"x 7" card and will add a sentiment when I decide to use it.

I matted and layered some turquoise card from my stash with a gorgeous First Edition paper from their Wild Flower 12''x 12'' pad. I created a small panel with the reverse of the paper and added a bubbles die-cut.

The cute image I used is called Little Mermaid Chibi. I coloured her with my Copics before matting her on turquoise card.

I added a strip of large rik-rak and some large flat backed pearls to finish.
