A birthday for Emma Mermaid

I am back with another card to share this time featuring Ms. Emma from Elizabeth Mae's.  No rants today as I am super busy.  But I promise to come back later and share my winner of the fabulous giveaway.  :-)

Our challenge this week is to bling it up!  I tried my best ;-)  This card uses some natural grass weaved paper I bought a long time ago.  Really long time ago.  Like not even in this house of 5 five years.   I liked the texture and thought it would be cool to use.  ***Warning-it's difficult to secure to paper.  I have used glue dots, liquid glue, tape runners, and don't really see any of these as better than the others.  I have also tried to just secure with brads which did work but sometimes you don't want those elements.  Anyhow, that's a strip of Sass Lass along with a punched floral circle.  I punched a blue glitter center for the lovely water she is surrounded in. 
What you probably won't see too well is the creme paper has been sprayed with Delphinium (can't find on site)and Gold mists from Tattered Angels.  Love the sprays but they warp the papers too much for me to use effectively on cards.   I have tried wafting in the air.  Spraying several inches above to let it fall gently on and it's no the effect I want. 
You can't have a bling challenge without bling.  So I used large and small rhinestones and a gold thread with metallic strands. 
For my sentiment, I punched a bracket from cream cardstock and attached part of a SRM Sticker.  Done!

It's too bad the grass is so difficult to adhere to the paper. It gives a great texture to the card. Love the mermaid! Thanks for joining our 1st Crafting When We Can Challenge :)

Great card with loads of texture and dimension. Love the note background, it reminds me of a siren singing her alluring song to the passing sailors.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful work with us at Crafting when we can challenges. :-) xx

Great card! You ya'did good with the bling (you can never have too much bling!) :D
The sea grass background is perfect for the image but it would be tricky to adhere. Some spray glues might work but they stink so you have to spray them outside.
Thanks for sharing your pretty project! :)
