Celestial Summer ~ MMSC16

Hello and happy Tuesday to my fellow crafters! Can you believe we are beginning to wind down from a hot and busy summer? With that thought in mind, I felt the image of this weeks card would be appropriate. And I've been on a bit of a "water" theme recently, so she fits right in. :)
The Midnight Madness Team wants to thank Michelle Perkett for being our sponsor this week. The mermaid pictured in my card is from her collection of beautiful artwork.
I added a bit of sparkle everywhere and attempted a chiffon flower that was in the tutorial over at Midnight Madness a week ago. The sun is a SU stamp embossed in gold and then touched up with a little metallic paint and glitter. Then I added more flowers, ribbon and rhinestones for a finishing touch! Now it's your turn! :)

Michelle, your card this week is so innovative with the use of the sun element. Your chiffon flower came out spectacular and is a nice accessory. I was enthralled with the heart cutouts. Your attention to details is spectacular. Fascinating and artistic. tfs
