Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #256

 This week at Tuesday Throwdown we have a sketch challenge sponsored by My Grafico, where you can find a variety of clipart, graphics, printable templates, digital papers, stamps and much more.   Our design team was given a fun set by My Grafico called Pretty Mermaid to play with and inspire you.  You should see the wonderful matching papers they also have available. 
I hope you'll pop over to the Tuesday Throwdown blog to see what my very talented teammates have made for your inspiration.  We've welcomed 2 new team members this week, Amy and Andrea. Please make them feel at home by stopping by their blogs and leaving some love.
Then be sure to join in the fun at Tuesday Throwdown this week.  We just love seeing your crafty cards and projects and visiting all your blogs.

FYI: I printed each creature on different colored cardstock and then fussy cut them to add to the card. I used the negative from cutting out a cloud on the Cricut as a stencil to add the clouds to the blue background paper.  I love the punch I used to create the wave pattern on that fabulous glitter paper.  I made 2 layers to give it dimension with the whale riding between.  I couldn't resist giving the whale a googly eye.  And the banner in the upper right being pulled by an off the page airplane was made using a CTMH stamp.  

I am entering this card in these fun challenges:
