Charisma cardz #6–DT card

Good morning friends, I forgot to schedule my post last night so I’m hastily typing it before I go to work (never a good idea lol).  It’s time for a brand new challenge over at charisma cardz challenge and this week the lovely Carol has chosen the theme “mythical/fantasy”.  I decided to use a CC designs mermaid digi image as they are both mythical and fantasy I think.  I have gone “clean and simple” on my card but I’m not sure if I like it – some crafters make this style of card look so stylish and elegant but I can’t seem to get to grips with it.  Here is my card (let me know what you think about my attempt at CAS):

charisma cardz #6 - magical & fantasy

I have used another scalloped card (that was found under my desk!) and the image is called ‘mermaid Emma’.  I coloured her with my promarkers of course and added stickles to her waist and hairband.  There is an awful lot of white on my card…..mmm I’m not sure!!

We have two sponsors this week – firstly we have All That Scraps and they are offering the lucky winner either 1 stamp set or 4 single stamps.

All that scraps

Our second sponsor is Pink Cat Studio and they are offering the lucky winner 5 digi images of their choice.

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples for your inspiration once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.  I apologise as I don’t think I managed to get around to commenting on my allocated entries last week but I’ll make sure I’m more organised this week! 

I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:
