Mermaid Birthday Card

Hi folks! Here's the card I made for my sister. Her birthday was at the beginning of this month. I decided to go for some decoupage and this pretty mermaid.
Quite a simple card to make. I tore some mulberry paper to use for a background I added the layers of decoupage using dimensional glue gel and embellished the final layer with Stickles and Pearlidoodles.
The sentiment is stamped from one of Paula Pascual's sentiment sets and cut with Nestabilities. I finished the card off with a sheer white ribbon bow and some self adhesive pearls.
I'm so sorry I haven't been able to visit you all yet. I'm hoping to catch up with all your crafty makes this week.
Ciao for now!
