Notebook Cover-The Sweet Stop Sketch 171

Happy Sweet Stop Saturday my friends!!  Another week has come and gone way to quickly.  We took another trip to Austin today but his time to stop by Ikea.  My kids love going there and playing in the kids area while we shop, it was on their "summer to do" list.  So funny I take them to children's musems and places all summer and they just want to go to Ikea, granted I think this trip cost me more than  any of the others LOL.
Anyway, as I said it is The Sweet Stop Saturday and we have another fabulous sketch to share with you.  The reason my card looks so big is because this is actually a special cover I made for my first graders 3 ring binder.  Riley loves mermaids, dolphins and lady bugs so we hit 2 out of three.

The background stamp is from Make It Crafty called Coral Border Digi, the mermaid is Sweet November Shimmer Rekelp and the dolphin is from the Ocean Wavedancer digi.  The swirl is from Memory Box.  The wave punch is from Fiskars and I used  circle punches and Copics to create the bubbles. Riley made sure that I knew dolphins look shiny so I added a coat of Glossy Accents and the mermaid got a coat of Crystal Stickles.

I love the mermaid. Found you accidentally tonight and I see you don't want to list the copics you used but am wondering if you would be willing to email me just the colors you used on the mermaids outfit? I just love the combo!!!! If you would be willing you could send to it marcylmadeit@comcast.net
