Mermaid Fantasy Birthday

This is my second post for today.  The Teddy Bo post is below this one

I know we all have our favorite artists and one of mine is definitely Michelle Perkett.  I love the fantasy of her images.  I'm into anything magical, butterflies and purple.  This gorgeous creation is "Butterfly Fairy Stamp".  This is an older image but she has several new ones out that are on my wishlist!  I chose to do her in yellow, orange and green because I'm tired of the snow and cold weather.  I thought this would give out some warm happy thoughts.

All items are from My Creative Scrapbook kit.  The butterflies are doubled up and stamped with Martha Stewart's punch.  I glued down one side on each to give it dimension.  The floral swirls are cut from my cricut.  I chose to back everything with black just to set it off a bit more.  These flowers are also from Flora Doodles.  They were piling up so I broke into 'em finally.  The floral swirls were cuts from my box of "extra's" that I cut and never used.  I"ve been trying to pull that out and use some stuff up.  I practiced alot of different cuts when I first got my Cricut and just put it all in a box for later instead of tossing it.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Don't forget we have a new challenge at DZ Doodles this week.  You won't want to miss it.  I've seen what the team did for inspiration and it's gorgeous!  Also, a heads up there will be candy coming soon!
