Royal Kat Wednesday!!!

Hey Peeps!! Welcome to another Royal Kat Wednesday for Queen Kat Designs!!
You should be coming straight here from Whimsical Ink Sorority
This week the challenge was to create something based on this picture from the Pier 1 catalog!!

Oh my I can say this was tough, still is... I said this to a good friend when I was making this card..."I think the 70's barfed on my card"!! This June bug paper is cute but it was hard to make these papers go together! I tried to stay close to the colors from this picture...
as I said I used June Bug paper from BasicGrey and I used Star mermaid from Queen Kat Designs. I colored with copics and paper pieced her outfit. I added a sentiment and ribbon and rhinestones.
Stamps Used: Star mermaid, Your My..-Queen Kat Designs
Paper Used: White-PTI, June Bug-BasicGrey
Ink Used: Versafine onyx black
Accessories Used: Copics, whisper white satin ribbon-SU, rhinestones-KaiserCraft
Now I want to explain why I used Star mermaid... It is for Whimsical Ink Sorority's 2nd Hazing event!!! Since you just came from there you have already seen the rules but for the few that might not be hopping along and want to know whats up...
