Crafty Gals Corner - Challenge #97 - Use a sentiment

It's time for another challenge with us at the
This week we are adding words to our creations
 with Challenge #97 - Use a sentiment


Our sponsor this week is:
Lacy Sunshine
Prize: 3 Digital Images

*** EDITED 2019 ***
Lacy Sunshine Stamps is now Colour Of Love

Today I have used the cute Rory - Just a Lil Mer digital stamp from Lacy Sunshine Stamps, our generous sponsor this week.

I coloured Rory using Copic markers and attached her to a shell shaped pop-up card (details below).  I embellished the card using dies and cut files instead of the mermaid & seaweed that comes with the card file (details below).

Here is a close-up pic showing Rory with the card fully open and laying flat.

I added some Wink Of Stella sparkle to Rory's tail.
