My Little Girl is 5!

My youngest daughter turned five today, where did the years go?  I made this card for her.  She has been going on about mermaids for a while, so I thought she would like this image - Ariel Littlest Mermaid by Yampuff.  She has her images on Deviant Art and you can download many for free!

I did a little bit of experimenting with the colouring this time, so I'm not 100% happy with it.  However, I am really happy with the layout and colours I have used for that.  Thanks for stopping by to have a look.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Digi Stamps for Joy - Birthdays are fun
Card Makin Mamas - Birthdays
Celebrate the Occasion - Girls birthday (must use pink)
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - Dies and punches
Die Cutting Divas - Bingo (gems, 3 patterned papers, stitching)
