Mermaid Fairy

  Evening everyone-
I wanted to come on really briefly and share a card that made using one of the new images from ADFD.  This image is called Mermaid Fairy.  I wish I could afford the entire collection, but I opt on this image.  

Here is a close up.  I did some major fussy cutting, trying to keep a thin layer of white around the image.  Paper piecing was also done to her tail and top.  Her head, wings and tail are not adhered to the paper. It is simply just floating sort of speak.  
Body, wings and hair were colored using Copics. 
The circles were cut out using Spellbinders and pearls were just placed randomly around the image. 

This is a very simple card for me, yet I love the look and colors.  I wish I could have taken a better picture, because the patterned papers actually have beautiful shimmers. 

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
