Pollycraft Friday Freebie... It's a Mermaid!!

Hi Everyone!!

The Pollycraft Friday Freebie this week is this gorgeous little Mermaid... isn't she cute and as Gok always says "bang on trend" he he!! ...

The swirls were created by running the patterned paper through a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then running a drying up black ink pad over the top (I like to use Brilliance black ink)...

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges...

I Love Digi Challenge - 'Emboss it'

Cute Card Thursday - 'Reuse, Renew, Recycle' (the ribbon was off a new top I bought this week!)

Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Ribbons and Bows

Last night I went with my friend for her Wedding Dress fitting (I had to be shown how to tie the back as that's my job on the day EEK!!) Anyway she looked beautiful in her dress... and I got my bridesmaid dress to try on which looked nice now I've got my wonder pants which are seamless and tummy pulling in as that dress holds no prisoners I can tell you he he!! Only trouble is I'm just too pale... I look like an uncooked chicken so going to fake tan before the big day... it's getting exciting now... only about 7 weeks EEK!!

Thanks for looking everyone and enjoy the sunshine!!

Love Becky xx

Absolutely GORGeous card hun, saw it on the blog when I popped on to grab the freebie. Love the colours, and your embossed,inked backing is fabby!
You'll be fine with the lacing of the dress, and I am sure you will look as stunning as the bride (although sshhh.... don't tell her!). With all the wedding excitement it may put you and Mr Becky in the mood to tie the knot yourselves ;0)
Have a great weekend,
