I love mermaid themes. They're such fun magical creatures and this week our Tuesday Throwdown sponsor, MyGrafico, has given us an adorable set to use. This set is called Pretty Mermaid and the challenge is this fun sketch below for you to try.

I colored and trimmed the excess paper around the mermaid and adhered it to the embossed white background. I also did some stitching for added texture. The starfish is a part of the set and I used that as an embellishment. I love adding texture to white cardstock so I also embossed the white card front.
Please head over to the TT blog for more DT inspirations and enter to win some fun prizes from our sponsor.
