Each mini blog hop has a new release prize hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw.

For my card today I used the adorable new Wee image called Goldie. Colleen Schaan had recently posted a gorgeously colored mermaid on her blog and I knew I wanted to try out the look and the colors she chose. So I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed it with a Classic Square Nestabilities die. die and colored it with Copic Markers (Skin: E000, BG000, B00   Dots: G14, G17, BG57   Scales: G12, G14, G17   Hair: B21, B24, B26, B29, G12, G15   Bubbles: YG000, G00). The image was stitched to a piece of Coordination cardstock, cut and embossed with a Scalloped Square Nestabilities die.

A piece of Bo Bunny Barefoot & Bliss patterned paper was cut and embossed with a  Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded before Aqua May Arts Ribbon was tied around the paper. The layer was then adhered to the card base, a 4 9/16″ x  9 1/8″ piece of Solar White cardstock folded in half.

A sentiment from the new Ticket Notes was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink on white cardstock, cut it out and colored it with Copic Markers BG000 and G12. It was tied on to the ribbon bow with embroidery thread and a button. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl was adhered over the bow, and part of a Fancy Waves Border Bling was added to the lower right corner to finish off the card.
