A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges

Well I must be going crazy as this is the second card created for this 2nd blog of mine this week, mind you I have also been writing up Challenge posts over the last two days so its not as if Ive not been busy, but I did create this for this weeks challenge over on Facebook for Sugary Sundays "Glitz" challenge.
Ive used this cute mermaid called "Water Lily" and I have stamped her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die No.8 to cut her then drew around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image.
Before making up the card I used some Quickie Glue on the tail and then scattered some glitter on it, and used some pearl glue for the dots on her hair. The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and the papers are from Sweetshoppe Designs and this one is called "Coastal Getaway" appropriate considering the image. I have used three of the papers and mounted them up as shown and the image was then placed in the center towards the top and the sentiment below on the right.
To finish of I have used some pearl swirls and stuck them down the left hand side, to add the glitz that the challenge required.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
