A Card created with Aurora Wings Images

Good Morning Crafters, well I have at last managed to get a card created for this months Aurora Wings Facebook Birthday Challenge and for this I have used this gorgeous Mermaid image and she has a glass slipper on her tail you will find her here. I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used the large circle Nestabilitie die to cut out and a fancy one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash I think its a Creative Expressions one and this was mounted onto blue card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and the first mount is of blue card and the papers are from that I bought from Etsy digi downloads, its a under the sea set, and the first paper is a pale blue with bubbles on and the second and third are spotty and these I have cut into a 6.3/4" and a 5" inch square and then used Martha Stewart border and corner punches on and layered up and then across the center I wrapped a multi coloured piece of ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then placed my mounted image in the center and the sentiment was placed in the bottom right hand corner, and for the final flourish I have placed some aquamarine pearls in the top right hand corner and bottom left one.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
