Dive right in for that friday feeling!

Hello all!
I can't believe it's friday again - this week sure has flown past and it's another friday challenge over at The Outlawz and today we're splashing around with a water theme.  So much scope with this one and we have a great prize this month as we are being sponsored by guylous inimitability.

                                     For my card, I chose to use a Mayzy Art mermaid -

    The Cameo was used again for the die cut background pieces (love that scallop edged oval) and I dyed the seam binding with some Distress Ink and Perfect Pearls spray.  I will admit to not being 100% happy with the layout but I've been having a few off days craft-wise - sometimes I just can't put it all together in the way I want it to be!  Plus I've been struggling with some other projects that have not been going well and I think that's put me in the 'off' zone :(
            Not to worry - I'll do some pinning to get some inspiration and come back to the projects after a few days.  

Challenges -

Thanks for popping by - have a great friday!

Well, I think this is a fabulous card, Dawn! Your colors are beautiful. And that mermaid--oh, my, I love how you colored her! The Cameo cuts on this card are really cool! You must be loving that machine! :^)
Oh, no, did you lose your mojo, too? I promise I didn't steal it! And it didn't run away and hide in my guest bath, either! ;^)
