All at Sea with Divas By Design

Good evening have you had a good day I hope so. It started off raining here in Manchester but by dinner we have some lovely warm sunshine.
 My son had a bad accident at work with a cystal glass nearly took his middle finger off when it broke. Rushed off to A & E no one could drive so he had to go on his own, Really not good in my opinion. Hey Hoe 2 xrays nurse said omg that is bad and look at the blood. Lol. Well he had glass in it so had to be cut further cleaned and stitched another mill and he woud have nerve and tendon damage.
He is off camping next week and has been told not to use it for 3 weeks at least so how he will put a massive tent up god knows. Have spent this afternoon trying to find a caravan with his budget as he was going on a tight budget with his girlfriends child.
Anyway I have been doing some colouring to get rid of the stress and have my Dt card for you this evening for DIVAS BY DESIGN and this week we have a Sea theme so anything to do with the sea, Mermaids, ships, fish .
We also have the results of our GDT / DT call so if you have entered pop along and check it out.
So onto my card I have used a stamp from CRAFTY SENTIMENTS called Primrose Mermaid and you can find it in the shop along with some other stamps that would fit the theme.

I have used DP from stash, Sequin waste, Lace from local shop, Viva pearls, Hessin cut with a Tim holts die held together with a Gem Brad, sentiment is also from Crafty Sentiments. The scallop circle has been scored to give a shell like effect with glitter round the edge of the stamped image.
Well this is my make and hope it has inspired you to come and join us. We would love to see you over there and one of the team will be along to be inspired by you.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and have a peep at my card.
