I love you -deeply

This is my second post for today and this week's sweetpea card.
What a fabulous image and colours for this card, don't you agree? It makes me happy just looking at it. I love the slightly different colourcombo with pale turquoise, green and vibrant red. And who said you can't have flowers under the sea?

The image I have chosen for today is one of Samantha Rawling's little sweethearts called lil' mermaid from sweetpea stamps. I love her first stamps and this one has been hiding from me. Being a scubadiver this image is very close to my heart. Imagine seeing one of these creatures brushing her hair during a dive!

I have coloured the little mermaid with my promarkers. The papers (from daisybucket) are so vibrant and beautiful that I wanted to keep the card simple. The only thing I did was to doodle a bit on it. I wrote "I love you" around the little heart on top right and doodled scallops around the image and bottom panel with a silver pen. Other than that I let the image speak for itself - so to speak :)

Challenges for this card:

Everybody art - sketch
Fuzzy wuzzy - anything goes
Oldie but a goodie - bright and cheerful
Stamp something - anything goes
The secret crafter - with love
