Treasured Friend

 It feels like it's been a long time since I had something crafty to share with you!  It's only been four days since my last creation was posted, but I have been busy cleaning and reorganizing my desk (I'll show off my new custom made Copic holder in another post later), and I have been so eager to sit down at my craft desk every night since I received it!

Today I'm here to share today's Sassy Studio Designs Fabulous Freebie Friday image with you!  Available for 24 hours beginning at 5am PDT/8am EDT, we offer a new free image every Friday for our Paper Craft Planet group members!  This week we have an aquatic cutie named Mermaid Mandy!

I started with the sketch above from Try It On Tuesday. I had purchased a K&Company paper pad called Tim Coffey Travel in the Spring and decided it was time to use it again.  So much paper, so little time!  *sigh* Mandy is colored with Copics and a liberal amount of Baby Blue Stickles was applied to her tail.

I fussy cut her and used foam squares to pop her up on top of the Crown Ovals Nestabilities die cut from Spellbinder.  I added a pearl to each of the crown points.  Some stitched ribbon, flowers, and a few punches (Martha Stewart and Fiskars) finish off the card front.  

 To play along with our Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge this week (#139 - What's on the Inside) I decorated the inside of my card too!  This is a birthday card for a lovely friend of mine so I used a sentiment from a Gina K stamp set I have.

Please head over to our Paper Craft Planet group to see what the wonderful Fabettes have come up with using this image for our current "Slippery When Wet" challenge!  And don't forget to download Mandy for your Sassy collection while you're there!

SSD has a new release this week and all the fun starts at 12:01am PDT this evening!  There are some Vicious Villains waiting to make an entrance!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, E04, Y38, E13, E15, E17, E19, B00, B34, B37, B39).
