Watery Birthday - This is the only image I have ever seen of a little merboy. I love the simple lines. Michelle Perkett called this image of hers simply "Junior." A very fitting name for this young merman.

The challenge at Michelle Perkett's Studio this week is buttons and bows. At first I thought I would do a frilly, girly image, but as many of you know, I like to think out of the box. A frilly, girlie image would have been too easy; so as you can see, I went with a musculine card.

DP is Cloud 9 design and Paper Adventures. Ribbon is dots and dashes. Buttons and brads finish of the card.

Junior was colored with Copics. I didn't want to make him girlie, so the only Stickles I used was Waterfall Stickles. Junior was cut with Spellbinders.
