Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge No. 198 Sponsored by Crafty Sentiments & Kenny K

Good morning friends - how are you, good I hope.

This is a scheduled post as sadly I am going to my Aunt's funeral in Liverpool today.  Won't be making it back to Buxton until the evening time.

On a much lighter note though, there is another wonderful challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty.  The theme this week is Polka Dots.  I love using polka dots patterned paper on my designs.  Please come along and join in the fun.

My card.....

My image was very kindly sponsored by Kenny K Downloads and she is called Mermaid.   Isn't she lovely.  I have coloured her in with Pro-Markers and the polka dot papers are from Wild Rose Studio Polka Dots 6 x 6 pad.  It's quite an old pad.  The swirls are die-cut.  The shells are from my holiday in Wales and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Everything else you see is from my stash.
