PFOP meets Crafty Angels

Good morning.. late, late, late.. eeek!! I've got so many things going on this week I just know I'll be chasing my tail for most of it!

Anyway, I did unthinkable with my card for today ... I combined 2 DT challenges *oh the shame*

On Pocket Full of Posies we have a colour combo of Peach and Aqua, -  this was soooooo much easier than I thought it would be. I had a freak out moment when I learned what the colours were, lol. 

...and on Crafty Angels we have a theme of Something Old, Something New. This will be my last DT submission for Crafty Angels as I am stepping down as DT member. It's been a blast but it's just time for me to move on.

The papers are DCWV Pocket Full of Posies (how appropriate, lol) and I've had them! My beautiful Mermaid Tilda is from the new Magnolia Summer kit. I coloured her in using copics and sponged the background with distress ink. 

Don't you just LOVE the water splashes??!! They were sent to me courtesy of Jacque when I won one of her fabulous blog candies earlier in the year. The pearls are snippets from a Prima swirl and my flowers are a combination of Wild Orchid and Prima.

This card is sweet perfection. The colors came out brilliantly. Love the water splashes, and how clever to use pearls for an underwater card.
