Michelle Perkett - Mermaids Galore Challenge

I made this card for the Michelle Perkett -Mermaids Galore Challenge .  This is my first card using one her images and I really like it.  I especially like the message of "Just Breathe" on it.  I decided to keep the card simple and try to put the focus on the image.  I'm sorry it's a little blurry.  I must have moved my hand a little when taking the picture.  I chose to color her with Twinkling H2Os which may not be coming across well in the photo, but she's very shimmery.  Thanks for looking :)

Paper: Canson Watercolor
Card is Gemstone A2 by Memory Box
Color Medium: Twinkling H2Os and Derwent watercolor pencil for face and arms
Embellishements: Mini Pearl Gems, sheer blue ribbon
Nestablilities: Classic Scalloped Squares
