Creative Card Crew: Fantasy

Good morning!  It's time for another Creative Card Crew challenge; this fortnight our theme is "fantasy" and our sponsor is Michelle Perkett.  Michelle has some beautiful fairies, but I couldn't resist this whimsical mermaid; I think she's a doll!  Thank you, Michelle!

When I was working on my card, I couldn't decide whether I should go with birthday or water themed DP.  I finally settled on these cute fish....  The DP was already distressed, but I distressed the edges further to give it a bit more texture; I like the shabby look paired with the crisp white cardbase and image panel.  The image is colored with pencils and accented with glitter and mini brads.  I pierced a circle, added some brads and popped the image up.

Image: Michelle Perkett  Digital Stamp'
Ink: Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Fancy Pants Designs DP
Embellies: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Pink Smoothie", Recollections Brads
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Crafter's Workshop Template, Dimensionals

I have seen some peeks at the rest of the DT's cards; you won't want to miss peeking yourself!  Better yet, why not play along for a chance to win this fortnight's prize?  (Michelle Perkett's "Lily" image.)

Thank you for stopping by!

The DP fits perfect Angela. I like the piecing around the circle and these little brads. They are not easy to handle- they are soooo little. Beautiful card and sweet image.
