Kara's Mermaid ?

A very good afternoon to all my friends, followers and visitors today. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and enjoying this fab spring weather.
I have had a lovely weekend, visited my Mum and Dad yesterday and got taken out for a lovely lunch at a beautiful gardens near to them and then today my daughter treated me to a gorgeous cream tea which was part birthday treat, part Mothers Day-just lovely and I am so full now I don't think I will eat for a week!!
I spent this morning finishing off this card which I made for my daughter Kara who just loves mermaids and is (much to my despair!!) planning on a tattoo of one. This is one of two cards I'll be making for her as I had two ideas and couldn't make up my mind which one to go for so thought I'd make the both and decide after!! The other one involves a photo of her new puppy Evie so if that turns out OK I'll share it later!
I used an image I won in the Art by MiRan birthday celebrations and just knew Kara would love it! She's coloured with my Promarkers and I layered her with papers from First Edition.  I decided to try distressing the paper which I'm not really used to and I must say I don't know what was more distressed, me or the paper-I just couldn't seem to get it to look like others I've seen on the blogs-maybe it just takes a bit of practice!!
I used a die cut swirl to match the bath pattern and I die cut a corner too. I added some card candi and also added glitter to her tail. I added glossy accents to the bubbles to make them shine. A large flower coloured to match finished it all off:





I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
