It Ain't Easy Being Green.

Good Morning!!  I hope you have a FAB weekend lined up!
I've got tons of projects in the works and a nice little nap scheduled ;-)
If you happen to carve a bit of crafty time out for yourself, hop on over to The Octopode Factory's Challenge Blog and check out the latest challenge---GREEN!! 
In honor of St. Patty's Day, of course.
I've colored up Lily's Whimsical Mermaid for my card.  How fishy fab is she?? 
The sentiment is a lovely Frida Kahlo quote and can be found in all it's glory on Quote Sheet 1.

A few splatters of a shimmery mist over a Dylusions base gave me a perfectly watery and bubble-tastic background for her. 

Aaaand, of course, I had to give her a bit of scaly texture around her gorgeous eyes.  I was going for an iridescent feel.  LOVE how it came out.
Ok, my guys and gals, have a wonderful weekend and go getcha CRAFT ON!!
