Cute Card Thursday #167 - Embellish Your Image

It is Thursday, and time for another Cute Card Thursday Challenge!

Our challenge this week is to Embellish Your Image. Here is my card....


Paper: K&Co
Accessories: Stickles, Cricut Lacy Labels, Glossy Accents, Lace, Shells, Nellie Snellen Floral Branch Punch 2,  


I colored Little Mermaid Tilda with Distress Ink, and then covered the tail with Stickles. I also added shells for ear rings and a few shells along the bottom of the image.


Here, you can better see the Stickles. I covered the bubbles with Glossy Accents to give the bubble effect. 


I wanted to add some ocean accents, so I added some pearls and shells. 


I added some color to the flowers with distress inks and a blending tool.


I am joining the Sketch Saturday Challenge this week. Here is the sketch...


I hope you will join our challenge this week and embellish your image. We love to see what you create!


Thanks for stopping by today!
