Ocean Of Joy To You - FFFC #148 'Fantasy'

Hello.  Happy Friday!

We're kicking off a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  The lovely Pat K is our hostess for this challenge and the theme she's chosen is 'Fantasy.'  Our challenge sponsor is Live and Love Crafts.  To get complete details on the challenge, the prize being offered and how you can join in the fun, visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog.  Check out also the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.

Here's the card I've created for the challenge.



The sentiment is a digi from Create With TLC--lots of wonderful sentiments there and Paulette gives lots of freebies if you're one of her 'Digi Buddies' (followers).

A view of the inside of my card.


The two images I'm using on my card are from A Day For Daisies:


- this first one is called Mermaid's Favorite Shoe (available from ADFD Etsy Shop HERE)


- and the second image is called Mermaid of Star (this was a freebie from a couple of years ago)

I love the gorgeous images from A Day For Daisies--they're delightful to colour.  I've used mainly my markers to colour the above two mermaids, with a few coloured pencils thrown in there.
