Don't Be Square - Use a Shaped Card for Totally Papercrafts Challenge

It's time for another Challenge at Totally Papercrafts.
 The Challenge this week is
 ''Don't Be Square - Use a Shaped Card'  set by me - Laine.

I have used the so sweet image Pearl from Saturated Canary.  

Many congratulations to the winners of last weeks Challenge and thank you to all who participated, your cards are a delight to view. 

Our Sponsors for this Challenge are: 


Prize: 3 stamps (winner’s choice)

List of Materials used to make this card.

Go Kreate dies to make Easel Card and to cut Designer Papers from my stash,
Wonderful image coloured with my Copic Pens. 
 I watched Alyces fabulous tutorial on You Tube on how to colour a mermaids tail and tried to use her technique.  
Thank you Alyce for providing these wonderful tutorials.
Image is cut using a Spellbinder Die and I have really enjoyed used Frantage to decorate the edges.  
I have some Vintage Blue and it really Rocks.
I also used liquid pearls for her hair detail.
I have die cut anchors and starfish and used more fabulous Frantage. 
These die cuts are Marianne Designs I think. 
Waves die cut with you guessed Frantage detail.
Ribbon is seam binding, anchor and pearl in shell charm. 
Border is a Martha Stewart Punch which I though might look like bubbles.
Sentiment is from my stash and is inked with Versimark and heat embossed using sliver embossing powder.
I have tried to capture the spakle of the Frantage and glitter on the image below.

Thank you so much for reading this post and looking at my card.  I hope you can join us at Totally Papercrafts Challenge.

Sending hugs to all from,
