The Sea is Calling – by Heidi Blankenship

If you like sparkle you will LOVE Heidi’s mermaid themed project for today. It is filled with sparkly glitz! She started by selecting these fabulous images from Graphic 45 and used glitter paper as the backdrop. These papers work beautifully together and the watery feel comes through loud and clear! Take a look:

Now what little mermaid, young or old, wouldn’t just LOVE this card!

Flowers and sequins top it off perfectly.
